Family Planning

FAMILY PLANNING: A service to assist individuals and couples in planning and spacing births, contributing to positive birth outcomes and improved health for woman and infants.

Emergency Contraception (ECP)
Referrals for Tubal Ligation and Vasectomy
Clinical breast exams and pap smears
Counseling and education
Family planning centers offer a broad range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods and related counseling; as well as breast and cervical cancer screening; pregnancy testing and counseling; screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs); HIV testing; and other patient education and referrals.

In addition to clinical services, family planning also aims to improve the quality of 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 family planning service delivery and inform the broader reproductive health care field
  • Information dissemination and community-based education and outreach
