Expanding opportunity, increasing access

Nearly half of the 6 million pregnancies in the United States each year are unplanned. 

Our mission: Upstream USA works to expand opportunity by reducing unplanned pregnancy across the U.S. We work in partnership with health centers to strengthen reproductive care and autonomy by increasing equitable access to the full range of contraceptive options. 

Upstream is on track to achieve nationwide impact at scale.

We are data-driven, sustainable and committed to our partnerships

To expand equitable access to birth control, Upstream provides CME/CEU-eligible training and technical assistance to health centers across an entire state at once. We meet each health center where they and their patients are, monitoring our interventions as we go.

Our data sets us apart

After the first three years of Upstream’s partnership with the state of Delaware, there was a simulated 24 percent decrease in unplanned pregnancies among Title X patients aged 20-39.
