Discussion scheduled on reproductive healthcare for incarcerated women and minors

Posted By on Fri, May 24, 2013 at 10:59 AM

The Women & Girls Foundation will host an issue briefing next week, called "Reproductive Health Care for Underserved Populations: Innovative Programming for Incarcerated Women and Minors."

A panel of experts will address efforts to improve reproductive health care for incarcerated women and the rights of minors to access confidential healthcare. Attendees will learn how partnerships, strategic thinking and a modest budget have led to changes across the state. There will also be discussion of reform efforts locally and state-wide to improve conditions for women's reproductive healthcare in jails, as detailed in the ACLU's report, Reproductive Health Locked Up.

The discussion will take place at 9 a.m. Wed., May 29, at Calvary Episcopal Church, 315 Shady Avenue, Shadyside. The event is free, but registration is required. You can register for the event here.
