Family Planning Services

The Office of Population Affairs serves as the focal point to advise the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary for Health on a wide range of reproductive health topics, including adolescent pregnancy, family planning, and sterilization, as well as other population issues.

The Title X Family Planning program was enacted in 1970 as Title X of the public health service act, public law 91-572 population research and voluntary family planning programs.

By statute, Title X funds are not used to pay for abortions. For more than 40 years, Title X family planning centers have provided high quality and cost-effective family planning and related preventive health services for low-income women and men.
