We increase access to contraception

Upstream partners with states to provide health centers with patient-centered, evidence-based training and technical assistance that eliminate barriers to offering the full range of contraception. We work directly with physicians, obstetrician-gynecologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, midwives, medical assistants and administrative staff to ensure a tailored, cohesive experience for the whole team. 

About us

Upstream was founded in 2014 to expand opportunity and reduce unplanned pregnancy across the United States. Our headquarters are located in Oakland, CA and Boston, MA.

Our first statewide intervention began in Delaware. We are now working across the healthcare infrastructures in Washington, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Rhode Island. We’re working to achieve impact at scale across the United States. By 2024, our goal is to work with healthcare practices across four states that serve over 1 million women each year.

We’re changing healthcare for good

Upstream’s team makes our big vision possible. We hire star performers who share our passion for making contraceptive access an integrated part of healthcare.
