About Us

The Women’s Health and Family Planning Association of Texas was founded in 1977 by a group of individuals dedicated to the belief that every Texan should have equal access to high-quality reproductive health services and control over the timing and spacing of their children.

WHFPT is dedicated to:

  • promoting voluntary family planning services for all Texas women.
  • promoting responsible, medically accurate sex education, including abstinence, and complete information on contraceptive methods and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases as an essential element of Texas public school curricula.
  • providing for the availability of high quality, affordable, and accessible reproductive healthcare for all Texans.
  • ensuring access to reproductive healthcare through education and professional training.
  • providing leadership and information to the public and to its provider network.
