It’s time to stand with Planned Parenthood. As we pen this message, we find ourselves between two contrasting worlds. One world is a celebratory look back at a year of incredible challenges which we managed to turn into amazing victories. When the governor issued an administrative order—based on bogus, discredited videos—to defund PPAU education services and STD testing and treatment, we responded with the largest rally in support of PPAU in our history. We fought back in the courts with a lawsuit that resulted in a circuit court ruling in our favor. We have been able to participate in groundbreaking research to improve contraceptive health guidelines and funding for women and families in Utah and beyond. We launched numerous successful and enriching opportunities for teens and their parents to improve their learning about reproductive rights, justice, consent, and healthy lives. We have celebrated 100 years of Planned Parenthood’s mission and services with our communities and supporters and created the vision for the next century of our movement.

Karrie Galloway President & CEO

Our other world is the acknowledgement of the uncertainty this next year will bring. Nationally, and here in Utah, we will be faced with legislatures that have expressed agendas to challenge our ability to provide reproductive health care and education to the communities that depend on us. But with the incredible support of our community, we are confident that our business model is strong and resilient to the threats we face. Your generous financial support leveraged with our federal grants and insurance reimbursements made it possible for Planned Parenthood to have our first 10 million dollar financial statement in the nearly 50 years we’ve served Utah. We continue to serve almost 47,000 men and women in Utah with high quality health care and nearly 10,000 more with our award winning education services. You, our most trusted supporters, help make this work possible, and we are proud to share with you some highlights of the past year in this Annual Report!

Happy Birthday, Planned Parenthood! This year, Planned Parenthood celebrated 100 years of providing high-quality, affordable, and compassionate information and health care to young people, women, and men across the nation. Here in Utah, the last year of our first century saw political attacks, a high profile lawsuit, and the largest Planned Parenthood supporter rally in our history. Despite an uncertain political climate in the coming year, we are more determined than ever to be here for our community — no matter what!

In our nine health centers across the state, we continue to provide high-quality, judgment-free care to more than 46,000 Utahns, regardless of their ability to pay.

IUDs are one of the most effective forms of birth control available, with a failure rate of less than 1%.


We are making headlines with ground-breaking research in the HER Salt Lake study. The HER Salt Lake Contraceptive Initiative is a partnership between The University of Utah Family Planning Research Group and PPAU. From March 2016 to March 2017, HER Salt Lake is on a mission to provide free birth control to as many women as possible in Salt Lake County. In the first six months, HER Salt Lake made it possible for more than 3,100 women to get the contraceptive method of their choice for free.

With cost barriers removed, more than twice as many women left the health center with an IUD or implant. Over a 100 percent increase! This shows that cost is a barrier for women trying to access the most effective methods.

HER Salt Lake is tracking research participants’ education attainment, economic mobility, and social, health and relationship outcomes, all in relation to their contraceptive method choice, use, and continuation or switching.


You can learn more about the HER Salt Lake Contraceptive Initiative at www.HERsaltlake.org or connect with @HERsaltlake on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

We saw a sharp increase in positive chlamydia and gonorrhea tests. Women: up 63% for gonorrhea and 59% for chlamydia. Men: up 32% for gonorrhea and 37% for chlamydia. Because chlamydia and gonorrhea are often asymptomatic — meaning that many people who have chlamydia and gonorrhea do not exhibit symptoms — it’s important to catch and treat these sexually transmitted infections (STIs) early.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea testing is provided as a “panel” test, using one urine sample.


We reached 9,055 Utahns through education programs in schools, college campuses, govermental agencies, community-based organizations private social service providers, and professional development workshops. We believe that everyone deserves the accurate, reliable information they need to make responsible decisions and stay healthy. Our community education programs are offered in both English and Spanish, and are inclusive of individual cultures, values, and identities. We believe that parents — in collaboration with schools and communities — should be the primary sex educators of their children.

Education 8

Our Teen Council program expanded yet again, with 31 members in Salt Lake, Summit, Wasatch, and Utah counties. Our educators provided 160 hours of training to members who have gone on to provide educational presentations and outreach to 1,865 youth. The year-long program for high school students in 10th through 12th grade provides teens with at least 60 hours of training to become peer sex educators. Teens are invited into classrooms to present lessons on healthy relationships, body image, and other topics.

We are partnering with youth to ignite a powerful movement through peer-led sex education programs. Last year, teens from Utah County reached out to PPAU Educators and asked to launch a Teen Council. Monica lead member recruitment, and this year we launched our third Teen Council.


Teen Council members taught our sexual assault prevention curriculam, Know Before You Go, to 138 teens at Park City High School. Know Before You Go is based on the concepts of consent education and bystander intervention. This strategy is used to prevent sexual assault by interrupting a potentially harmful situation, or challenging societal norms that make sexual violence acceptable.

We are training Salt Lake County Teen Council members to deliver IN•clued — a brand new peer-led program designed specifically to support LGBTQ youth.


The goal of this research program is to reduce sexually transmitted infection (STI) rates and unintended teen pregnancy among LGBTQ youth. People in this group disproportionately experience poor sexual health outcomes, so this program aims to increase their knowledge and skills around safer sex practices, accessing health care, and communicating with health care providers. Our teens are very passionate about this work, and we are excited to work with our community partners as we begin implementing this program in the spring!

Improving the Lives of Teens launched in South Salt Lake. Some of our partners include the Sudanese Community in Utah, PROMISE South Salt Lake, Utah Health and Human Rights Project, International Rescue Committee, the Asian Association of Utah, among others. With their support, we are able to offer programs for parents and teens both after school and in their homes.

Linking Families and Teens (LiFT) is a brand new intervention designed for rural teens and parents launched in Summit and Wasatch County. This research program seeks to demonstrate that when parents connect with their teen, the likelihood that that their child will engage in risky behaviors (including teen pregnancy) is reduced. Parents and teens participate in a 6-hour program to practice communication and share learnings.


All of our 2016 Teen Success participants who graduated high school are now enrolled in college or technical training. This support group for pregnant and parenting teens meets weekly to help participants maintain family size. From classes on nutrition and contraception to storytelling workshops, the program gives teen parents a place to come together and learn how to become the person and parent they want to be.

For more information about our education programs email education@ppau.org.


When the governor announced he was directing state agencies to discontinue federal pass-through funding to our STI testing and education programs, we fought back and won. We won’t allow our elected officials to play politics with our lives. To hold the governor accountable, we teamed up with the attorneys who brought marriage equality to Utah and filed a lawsuit in federal court. That lawsuit went to the 10th Circuit Court and our request for an injuction was upheld. We were able to keep our funding and keep the programs running throughout the year.

For more information about the lawsuit, check out ppacutah.org/lawsuit.

Advocacy 13

Last winter, with the generous help of MRM//McCANN, we kicked off our PRO- campaign to shift public perception about who we are, what we do, and who we serve. Utahns often get caught up in what they are pro- or anti-. They use labels to separate “us” and “them”. But we don’t see the value of a state divided into clear-cut sides. It takes more to define us. We are pro-care. Pro-putting information in the hands of people who need us most. Pro-giving lower income families access and options when they feel like they have none. At Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, we are simply PRO-.


Visit proutah.org for more about our PROcampaign.

We kept our eyes and ears tuned on the legislature by continuing our Citizen Lobbyist program. Our eighteen Citizen Lobbyists attended committee hearings, read legislation, shared their experiences on social media, and lobbied for and against proposed legislation.

We’re recruiting now for our new Reproductive Freedom Forum. For more information about how to join, please email fellow@ppau.org.

We raised over $20,000 for Planned Parenthood Action Council’s electoral work at Liberty Luncheon. We welcomed supporters to the Second Century of Planned Parenthood with a panel discussion about reproductive rights with Dr. Willie Parker, Dr. David Turok, and Marina Lowe, Esq.


Teen Council members made their presence known at the Capitol in February. Teens spent President’s Day learning how to share their stories and lobby their policy makers. They descended on the Capitol the next day, ready to be heard and met with their elected officials to talk about why they are passionate about sex education.

Ten members of Teen Council attended the national “Lift As We Climb” Summit in Washington, D.C., this summer. They joined 250 teens from 32 clubs around the country, where they presented workshops on the School to Prison Pipeline and Reproductive Justice, attended a rally on Capitol Hill, and met with Senator Hatch’s staff.


We celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade with an abortion story telling event. Six Utah women bravely took the stage in front of a standing room only crowd and told their abortion stories to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court Case Roe v. Wade that made abortion legal in the United States.

To read more about the women’s stories click here for an article published in City Weekly.

We held our second annual Art of Safe Sex fundraiser this year, raising over $103,000, a 35% increase over last year. More than 500 people enjoyed an art auction and fashion show + auction featuring local designers and artsts. We want to thank our amazing planning committee, especially Event Chair Tina Ruga and board member Crystal YoungOtterstrom who ran the live fashion show.
