It’s time to stand with Planned Parenthood. Though there are some, even here in Utah, who would like to report the demise of Planned Parenthood, we are ecstatic to shout from the rooftops that we are stronger than ever with healthy financial numbers – and far from being “defunded.” Every day, we work to create a world where every Utahn has the health care and education they need to choose their own path to a healthy and meaningful life. We work hard to earn the trust of those we serve, and are constantly engaging in cutting edge research to develop better best practices around reproductive health care. We are experts in this arena, and we believe in providing the best care – no matter what. In the world of education and community outreach, we are creating new partnerships to reach diverse populations and communities statewide. We’re helping young people all around the state make responsible decisions and stay healthy, allowing them to fulfill their dreams. We are well on track to creating the healthiest generation of Utahns ever.

Karrie Galloway President & CEO

And in the advocacy realm, we’ve been tireless in our quest to push back on attempts to block Utahns from getting the health care and education they need. We’ve seen unprecedented political attacks on Planned Parenthood and the thousands of people that we serve – but we’re more committed than ever to standing up for our clients and fighting back for them. We’ve been able to accomplish this by having the best, most dedicated board, committing their leadership to build the momentum needed to keep Planned Parenthood Association of Utah focused on our mission. Our board is joined in partnership by the amazing and creative professional staff who do this work every day. And then there’s you – our supporters, our donors, our advocates. You shore us up when things get rough. You show up when we ask. You speak up. You stand with Planned Parenthood. Thank you for standing with us throughout this exciting, challenging year.

Sheila’s Story For years, Planned Parenthood has provided me a safe and comfortable place to turn to for affordable health care, that otherwise would be impossible for me to get. They provided a place where there is no judgment and I’ve been able to share information without feeling embarrassed. Above: Sheila, a student at the Universty of Utah.


We completed two studies which will improve patient experiences with intrauterine devices (IUDs), a highly effective, safe, and long-acting form of birth control.

Health Care

Our West Valley Health Center staff facilitated the first study, which enrolled 188 women seeking emergency contraception and an IUD. The results, which should be available early next year, will compare the effectiveness of the copper IUD versus a hormonal IUD combined with emergency contraception in preventing pregnancy. The other study, conducted at our Metro Health Center, tested a new device for inserting IUDs that is intended to ease pain and have fewer insertion failures.

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


We continued with the ground-breaking research in the HER Salt Lake study. This longitudinal study has enrolled hundreds of women seeking birth control at our Salt Lake, West Valley, and South Jordan health centers to track their birth control method decisions, pregnancy rates, quality of sexual health, and economic and life situations over three years.

Birth Control Birth control pills




Depo Provera shots






Condoms &

We saw a 6% increase in chlamydia and gonorrhea testing. 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.

Lori’s Story The jobs I worked to pay my way through college and even after college didn’t offer health insurance. The only way I could afford my annual exams was through Planned Parenthood. Fortunately, I never had an abnormal Pap smear – but I wonder how many women’s lives were saved because of the services that Planned Parenthood offered. Later in life, when I worked at better jobs, had health insurance, and could have afforded to go elsewhere, I continued to go to Planned Parenthood, because I trusted their professional, caring staff. Thank you, Planned Parenthood, for the value you bring to our community. Above: Lori, a proud Planned Parenthood supporter.


We reached 9,519 people through education programs in schools, college campuses, governmental agencies, communitybased 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 age-appropriate, medically accurate, and respectful 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.


Maria’s Story When I was the president of the Wyman Teen Outreach Program (TOP®) club at my school, I saw that students were given the chance to look at the world in a different view and given a time and place to look up their interests in what is going on in the world. We take what we learn, and we find a way to take action, in any way we can. When I became president, I started to see how much commitment and passion these students have to make a difference in however way, shape, or form, they can. Whether it’s collecting cans for a food drive in the rain, spending time making lunches to distribute to the homeless, or fundraising money to buy girls in third world countries school uniforms — these students in this program are able see a problem, find a solution, and put in the time and effort into making sure they make a change. Above: Maria, a student at the Universty of Utah.


We’re in the planning phases of a project that will develop and test a new curriculum to improve health outcomes for Salt Lake County’s LGBTQ youth community. The Inclusive Health Care — Youth and Providers Empowered (In.Clued) program will promote safer sex and healthy relationships among the LGBTQ youth community around the Salt Lake Valley through peer-topeer outreach, education and health center staff training.

Our Teen Council in Summit County had a successful first year, reaching 293 of their peers through presentations in classrooms and the community. Our 14 Teen Council members in Summit County and 18 members in Salt Lake County brought honest, ageappropriate peer-led sex education to their community.


We’re participating in a research project to test a new parent and teen intervention designed lower the rates of rural teen pregnancy. Teens report that their parents are the primary influence on their sexual decision making, so we’re launching the Linking Families and Teens (LiFT) program in Summit County to improve family connection with ninth and tenth graders and their parents. The program is designed to use family influence on decision-making to lower teen pregnancy rates through increasing birth control use and delaying the initiation of sexual activity.

We launched a new sexual assault prevention curriculum. Our educators developed this resource using best practices from national programs including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Green Dot and It’s On Us. Educators put this together with the lived experience of our 14 teens on the Summit County Teen Council and their peers, Know Before You Go is a curriculum designed to help young people prevent sexual assault in new environments, like college campuses or the workplace. Know Before You Go was taught to 6 parents and 10 teens in June at the Park City School District Office. Know Before You Go, our new sexual assault curriculum, is based around the concept of bystander intervention, which is a strategy used to prevent sexual assault by someone else interrupting a potentially harmful situation, or challenging societal norms that make sexual violence acceptable.


Teen Council is a year-long program that offers high school students in 10th through 12th grade with 40 hours of training to be peer sex educators. Teens are invited into classrooms to present lessons on healthy relationships, body image, and other topics directly to their peers. Every year, Teen Council members take what they’ve learned to Capitol Hill to lobby their legislators to support reproductive rights and sex education. Above: Teen Council members at Teen Lobby Day 2015.

Wyman Teen Outreach Program (TOPÂŽ) is a 25-week curriculum that empowers teens with the tools and opportunities needed to avoid teen pregnancy and improve their academic success. Above: The Midvale TOP club doing an Earth Day service project.

Teen Success is a support group for pregnant and parenting teens that meets weekly. 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.

Alexandra’s Story I’m the mother of two beautiful girls – Zoe is 12 and Hannah is 16. When it comes to my children, I advocate for the best of everything. We try to eat balanced meals, we get regular exercise, and we wear sunscreen when we’re outside. I’m also proactive when it comes to their education. I want them to be well-informed about their physical and emotional health, so they can make informed decisions as they grow up. Luckily, my daughters went to an independent school where Planned Parenthood was invited in to give an age-appropriate, facts-based presentation, which helped me start a dialogue with my girls. I know this conversation will continue as their bodies change and their relationships evolve, and I’m grateful that Planned Parenthood laid such a solid foundation for the rest of their lives. Above: Alexandra and her two daughters, Hannah and Zoe. 3.6

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.

We aren’t going to 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. While the lawsuit is still ongoing, we’re hopeful that the court will rule in favor of the thousands of Utahns who depend on us. For more information about the lawsuit, check out

With more than 3,000 people in attendance from all around the state, we told the governor loud and clear: Utah stands with Planned Parenthood.

We kept our eyes and ears tuned on the legislature with our new Citizen Lobbyist program, which launched this year. Our ten Citizen Lobbyists attended committee hearings, read legislation, and shared their experiences on social media.

Our Students for Choice clubs are going strong on three college campuses around the state, with two more starting next year. In July, representatives from our Students for Choice clubs at the University of Utah, Westminster College, and Salt Lake Community College went to Washington, D.C. for the Planned Parenthood Generation Action Conference, where they learned how to be advocates for reproductive justice. Right: Students for Choice members with Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Karrie Galloway, CEO of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.

We raised $30,000 for Planned Parenthood Action Council’s advocacy work at Liberty Luncheon. In honor of the Wonder Women in our lives, we held a panel discussion with four local activists about how we can all be reproductive justice superheroes in our communities – and built up our war chest to fight for reproductive rights in Utah.

The Logan Chocolate Festival — going strong for more than two decades — raised more than $21,000 for our Logan Health Center. This delicious volunteer-run event auctions off chocolate themed entries including brownies, cakes, cookies, creations by parent-child teams, professionals, and teens. With 36 entries and more than 500 attendees, the event raised $21,000, all to benefit our Logan Health Center. Mark your calendars for next year’s Logan Chocolate Festival, on Saturday, February 6 at the Four Seasons in Logan.
