Why?

Your generosity and contributions to Options for Sexual Health, BC’s Planned Parenthood, will support the provision of sexual health care and education throughout the province, including in remote areas where, if not for the Opt clinics, there would be no access to these services. Options for Sexual Health is asking for your support so we can continue to provide sexual health services in BC including the following objectives:

  • Support the clinics in 58 communities throughout the province
  • Provide sexual health services such as Pap screening and STI testing in urban and rural communities across BC, including in under-served communities
  • Deliver comprehensive sexual health education programs to school aged children, adults, parents, and seniors
  • Train volunteers in rural communities to be advocates for choice and positive sexual health
  • Meet the needs of youth by enhancing our partnerships with Foundry sites
  • Keep Options for Sexual Health running!
