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.


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


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


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


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


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


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.
