TEACH is an academic-community partnership whose goal is to expand reproductive health access by helping primary care providers and residencies integrate abortion training into their curricula and practice, and become leaders in comprehensive reproductive health care.
The UCSF Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), and the Department of Family and Community Medicine provide the setting for TEACH to expand its impact by situating it in the context of a broader initiative to improve reproductive health access through education, information dissemination, research, and policy reform.
