On Staten Island, a lack of accessible reproductive health services and deep concerns about privacy prevented many young people from seeking sexual and reproductive health services, including contraception, sex education, and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.
In 2011, NYHealth awarded a grant to Planned Parenthood of New York City (PPNYC) to collaborate with Community Health Action of Staten Island on establishing a PPNYC extension center clinic on Staten Island to provide comprehensive family planning services and help clients access health care coverage.
