Latinos face greater obstacles to obtaining, and benefitting from, sexual and reproductive health services than non-Latino white Americans. As a result, Latinos experience higher rates of reproductive cancers, unintended pregnancy, and sexually transmitted infections than most other groups of people in the U.S.
Planned Parenthood works every day with Latinos to improve the quality of their health care and to help them protect themselves and their families through education, preventive care, and lifesaving screenings for cancer and other health problems. As the nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care provider, our health centers provide contraception, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and lifesaving cancer screenings to millions, including over 620,000 Latinos each year. Our local partners in Latin America annually serve 1.2 million individuals.
