The 2017 Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award has been presented to Planned Parenthood for its 100-year history of advancing reproductive health and rights and advocating for greater access to health care for all people.

For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has been leading the effort to expand and protect reproductive health and rights in the United States and has made major contributions to public health during this time. Through innovations in health care delivery and dogged advocacy over the past century, Planned Parenthood has substantially improved health outcomes for women.
