Pope Paul VI Institute
The Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction was founded in 1985 to answer the call for reproductive health care that fully respects life. The challenges in Pope Paul VI's 1968 letter Humanae Vitae prompted Thomas W. Hilgers, MD, to begin scientific research in the applications of natural fertility regulation and to open the Pope Paul VI Institute in order to build a culture of life in women's health care throughout the world. The Institute has developed a new approach to women's health care that embodies the best principles of medicine and offers superior treatments to women and challenges mainstream medicine, which relies on contraception, in vitro fertilization, and abortion.
Its healthy, moral solutions to issues in women's health care impacts the lives of thousands of women, couples, doctors, medical students, priests, and babies on national and international levels. The Institute's developments — Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology — are building a culture of life in women's health care through its current programs and services.
Today, the Institute is located in Omaha, Nebraska, and is a 14,000-square-foot international research, education, medical, and service center. With a staff of 22 full- and part-time professionals and a mere annual budget of $1 million, the Institute is dedicated to continuing its founding mission to build a culture of life in women's health care throughout the world.
