Our Story

In 1994, Health Care Education and Training (HCET) was formed out of the belief that all people should have access to high quality family planning and reproductive health care and education, regardless of their income and geography. These services and programs should be provided by clinicians, educators, and other professionals that are receiving the best training and support available. HCET fills the gap between training, education, and practice. We support direct services providers so they can deliver high quality care tailored to their agency and community.

HCET’s work is focused in the states that surround the Great Lakes (IN, WI, IL, MN, MI, OH). We are continuously expanding as we find new partners, advance the integration of reproductive and sexual health into new sectors, and focus on finding “what works” through impactful program evaluation and moving data to action.
