For more than 40 years, Title X family planning clinics have played a critical role in ensuring access to a broad range of family planning and related preventive health services for millions of low-income or uninsured individuals and others.

Title X assists individuals and couples in planning and spacing births, contributing to positive birth outcomes and improved health for women and infants.

In addition to clinical services, Title X also funds the following program supports aimed at improving the quality of family planning services:

  • Training for family planning clinic personnel through five national training programs that focus on clinical training; service delivery; management and systems improvement; coordination and strategic initiatives; and quality assurance/improvement and evaluation
  • Family planning research and evaluation to improve Title X service delivery and inform the broader reproductive health care field
  • Information dissemination and community-based education and outreach
