The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a national organization that works directly with primary care providers, helping them integrate abortion, contraception, and miscarriage management into their practices so that everyone can receive this essential health care from their own primary care clinicians–such as family physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
