Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

MP Briefing 2017

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Publications

A briefing about sexual and reproductive health and rights in New Zealand has been sent to incoming Members of Parliament.

With our focus of whakamanahia: equity, access, choice, we make the following key recommendations:

  • Fund free sexual and reproductive health visits for all young people under 25.
  • Expand contraceptive options funded by PHARMAC, specifically a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD).
  • Initiate a review of abortion law with the aim of removing abortion from the Crimes Act 1961, and managing abortion as an integrated part of a comprehensive sexual and reproductive health service.
  • Ensure adequate resources and support for teachers and schools to implement the Ministry of Education sexuality education guidelines. 
  • Develop a cross-Ministry action plan for improving sexuality and relationships education in schools in consultation with communities and organisations.
  • Increase investment in sexual and reproductive health programmes in the Pacific.
