Policy & Advocacy

Policy Priorities

Our advocacy seeks to increase health equity and access to reproductive and other safety net services through stakeholder engagement, mobilization, and advancing a shared policy agenda.

MFHC’s 2024 policy priorities are:

  • Ensure Medicaid operates effectively and is structured to provide the best care possible;
  • Expand access to contraception and contraceptive equity;
  • Advance racial and LGBTQIA equity in access to healthcare;
  • Promote and improve the state Women’s Health Services Program (WHSP);
  • Defend against attacks to the health safety net;
  • Assure accurate and comprehensive sexual and reproductive health information and referrals, including to legal abortion outside Missouri;
  • Repair and improve the federal Title X program; and
  • Increase access to STI testing and treatment.

MFHC also supports partner organizations in achieving interconnected policy goals.
