The mission of NOARHP is to ensure that all Orleans Parish public high-school students have access to age-appropriate, evidence-based, culturally sensitive and comprehensive reproductive health education, leading to safer, more responsible reproductive health decisions.
NOARHP places LSUHSC-NO students in New Orleans area high schools to teach a ten lesson reproductive health course. Aditionally, it provides a free, confidential STI screening program in conjunction with the curriculum.
NOARHP has been 100% student led and student designed since its inception in 2011, including all curriculum development, curriculum implementation and project expansion. Furthermore, it plans to stay that way as it expands its reach into more high schools and adapts its curriculum to changing school needs.
