The UCSF Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health integrates research, training, clinical care, and advocacy to advance reproductive autonomy, equitable and compassionate care, and reproductive and sexual health worldwide.
We envision a world where all people have the resources, support, and power to determine their own sexual and reproductive lives.
Who we are
We are a multidisciplinary group of over 200 people with physicians, nurses, advanced practice clinicians, social scientists, clinical researchers, and staff that span UCSF schools and departments. Our home is in the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Division of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at UCSF.
In addition to the UCSF PRIDE values, these values guide our work:
Equity, inclusion and anti-racism
Our work is stronger and more just when we build an environment of equity and inclusion for our members, prioritize equity and inclusion in all our work, and actively work to end white supremacy and racism.
Our work is informed by reproductive justice, a framework created by 12 Black women in 1994 that integrates the concepts of reproductive rights, social justice, and human rights. We understand the role structural inequities play in shaping health, and while Bixby is not a reproductive justice organization, we strive to incorporate this framework and leverage our privilege as a large, public, and well-resourced institution to help protect the full scope of every person’s reproductive autonomy.
We believe research and clinical experience are important to advance person-centered and evidence-based policy, practice, clinical training, and public discourse. We invest in our members' efforts to influence policy in all of these realms.
Our work has more impact when we collaborate across and within teams, academic specialties and disciplines, and when we engage in transparent and ethical partnerships.
