It is our hometown health centers that many people rely on for preventive services, the treatment of chronic health conditions and now, they are on the frontline of combating a deadly virus.
Aunt Martha’s will use the funds to provide services related to preventive-health services, such as breast and cervical cancer screenings, education and testing, and referral for treatment for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.
The funding will also allow Aunt Martha’s to continue providing services related to family planning, including physician exams, prescriptions, laboratory exams and contraceptive supplies.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a portion of the funds will be used for telemedicine to maintain access to certain vital services provided as part of the Family Planning program, and to ensure the safety of its patients and employees.
“Aunt Martha’s is proud to be on the frontline, protecting women’s health rights and continuing to provide access to the critical services made available by the Family Planning program,” said Raul Garza, president and CEO of Aunt Martha’s Health and Wellness.
