Big picture thinking. Real world results.
AccessMatters, a non-profit, public health organization located in Center City Philadelphia, envisions a future where every person has the health care and information they need to thrive. In service to that vision, AccessMatters’ mission is to protect, expand, and enhance equitable access to sexual and reproductive health care and information for all people.
Transforming conversations about why access matters.
As fearless advocates for sexual and reproductive health, we galvanize stakeholders and policymakers regionally and nationally to de-stigmatize sexual and reproductive health. We are committed to raising the flag of sexual and reproductive health in each community where we work, to make it a public health priority, and a core component of primary care.
Not just experts. Experienced.
For more than 40 years, our organization has been working to successfully eliminate economic, social, cultural, and geographic barriers to care for more than 200,000 people annually in southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond.
Seeing the big picture.
Our relationships with a vast spectrum of health care providers and strategic partners–from leading academic institutions to community organizations–gives us the ability to identify opportunities and solutions where others do not. Not only does this unique and powerful perspective enhance all our partner support services, but it also guides our advocacy and community engagement.
AccessMatters assists providers in identifying strategies and solutions to enhance care while assessing and monitoring costs. Our projects are designed to increase consume engagement, facilitate efficient service delivery and utilization of preventative and outpatient services, and assess effective reimbursement strategies.
AccessMatters conducts community-based practice research, service utilization review, program evaluation, and needs assessment. Our research team frequently partners with leading academic institutions, complementing their strengths with the practical, on-the-ground experience of our expansive provider networks.
