TWHC is a coalition of organizations promoting access to preventive healthcare for all Texas women.

We are working toward the vision of a state where every woman has access to the preventive and preconception care that will help her stay healthy and prepare for healthy, planned pregnancies.

Our principles.

1

Improving access to women’s preventive healthcare to improve maternal and child health

2

A belief that education, counseling, and provision of the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods are essential components of women’s preventive healthcare

3

Encouraging the adoption of program policies for ample women’s preventive program funding

4

To empower women to take personal responsibility for their health and their future

5

Preventive care includes health history; contraceptive care; appropriate screenings, access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC); and preconception care

6

Advocating for the elimination of barriers, including systemic or
historic inequities in care, to preventive healthcare services – including prescription contraceptive drugs and devices

We make an impact.

Learn More: LARCs

Long-acting reversible contraceptives, or LARCs, are a form of birth control that prevents pregnancy over multiple years after the one-time placement of a device into a woman’s body. They are the most effective form of birth control and can be removed or “reversed” at any time.
