The Reproductive Health Access Network is a national movement of primary care clinicians focused on protecting and expanding access to abortion, contraception, and early pregnancy loss care in their communities and across the country.
The Network pulls together 4,000 primary care clinicians in 48 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and Canada to come together virtually and in-person to engage in advocacy, clinical training, and peer support. We organize nationally, through online listserves and in-person meetings at national and regional conferences and locally/statewide through the Cluster structure. The Network is open to any and all primary care clinicians, including, but not limited to: family physicians and residents, internal medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, physician assistants, adolescent medicine and pediatrics, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, and others.
Much of the Network’s core organizing work is done through our local networks, called Clusters. These state-based groups meet two to four times a year and are led by strong local reproductive health care champions. The Clusters aim to:
- Build connections among pro-choice primary care clinicians living in the same area, and create spaces for peer-to-peer support, clinical discussion, and training.
- Support clinicians to organize within their professional medical organizations, such as the American Academy of Family Physicians, in order to ensure that teaching and advocating for reproductive health care are organizational priorities.
- Support the integration of comprehensive reproductive health care, specifically contraception, miscarriage, and abortion care, into new sites and practices.
- Encourage clinician participation in advocacy and leadership development
- Partner with state and local reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations to collaboratively advocate for protecting and expanding access to care, especially abortion care.
We also have an online Cluster for Internal Medicine clinicians.

Razel Remen, MD (she/hers)
Regional Clinical Network Leader – Midwestern United States
Razel Remen grew up in Brooklyn, NY where she had the privilege of being shielded from most of the issues regarding reproductive access and equity relevant to most of the United States. She became aware of the problem when she moved to Tuscaloosa, AL to complete residency in family medicine. She received little training in the basics of family planning or contraception and became passionate about the problem after several heartbreaking interactions with patients who were forced to carry undesired pregnancies to term. She witnessed first-hand how a poorly timed or undesired pregnancy could have multiple serious negative impacts on not only the patient but also their children, any family members or loved ones they were caring for and their community. In 2015 she decided to move back to NYC to receive abortion, advanced contraception, and advocacy training with RHAP’s Reproductive Health and Advocacy Fellowship. After completing fellowship, she moved to the Detroit Metro Area of Michigan to work as an abortion provider for two free-standing clinics. In 2019 she joined the University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine as the Assistant Director for the newly formed Reproductive Health and Advocacy Fellowship. She is passionate about health equity, reproductive justice, environmental justice, restorative community transformation, and food sovereignty. She currently lives in the Ann Arbor area of Michigan with her son, 2 cats, and 4 chickens.
