You may or may not have heard about Title X in the news or cycling on social media. But do you know what it is or why it's important?
Title X is the only federal grant program dedicated to helping individuals obtain quality family planning and preventative health services. It serves the most vulnerable communities. And its primary goal is to promote positive birth outcomes and healthy families, allowing individuals to decide the number and spacing of their children. Administered by the Office of Population Affairs through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Title X plays a significant role in expanding contraceptive choice and access to 1 in 5 women in the United States. We support Title X and have been working with Title X clinics for over 10 years as they aim to offer a full range of contraceptive options to patients. Why is Title X important? It undeniably improves health outcomes for women and gives them more control over their lives. This in turn helps lift communities.
