Reproductive Health Services
July 2, 2020
After months of careful assessment that began in
2019, we have determined that our Reproductive Health Services will not resume as we begin to reopen our Public Health Clinic, which has been closed since March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, we engaged a consultant to evaluate our service offerings in
comparison to the needs of the community. The process incorporated input from
employees, community partners, and individuals receiving services. The full report can be viewed here.
The assessment found that the number of individuals seeking
services from our Reproductive Health Program had declined in
recent years and that adequate alternatives exist to support the needs of the
community were the program to close. In recent years, a shift in funding models
for these services has led to an increase in access to and availability of
primary care providers.
We will continue to
coordinate with providers throughout the county to assist them in partnering
with the Oregon Health Authority’s Reproductive Health Program and will work to
ensure equitable access to care for all of the county’s residents.
Immunizations and STD/HIV services will continue at the county’s
Salem Public Health Clinic located at 3180 Center St. NE and the county will
work to assist community members in finding a healthcare provider if they do
not already have one.
