Annual Report 2014-2015 > Introduction
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health works to ensure that women, men and adolescents have the power to manage their reproductive health. We improve care and training in abortion, adolescent sexual health, contraception, HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and pregnancy and childbirth. Our rigorous research and evidence translate into better reproductive health policies and clinical care around the world.
The Bixby Center is a hub at UCSF, the leading university exclusively focused on health. We are proud to be interdisciplinary: our 175 faculty, investigators, fellows, associates and staff have expertise in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, sociology, psychology, anthropology, demography, epidemiology, law, public policy and public health.
The Bixby Center has come a long way since we first set out to strengthen the science behind reproductive health care more than 15 years ago. Our 2014-2015 annual report highlights the Bixby Center's key achievements from the past year - a testament to the extraordinary work of our dedicated members and supporters.
A gift to the Bixby Center will have a major impact on the future of reproductive health research and training, and will help us reach more women, men and adolescents in need of high quality care around the world. Make your gift now.
