Contraceptive Access
Access to contraception is a key component for women to make personal decisions about her own life, including when or if she wants to become pregnant, and to choose if and when she wants a family. The Contraceptive Access Community of Practice is an online resource and discussion forum to share ideas, tools, and resources for breaking down the barriers to accessing the full range of contraceptive options.

Health Information Technology Graphic

On which side of the health care digital divide are you?  Health Information Technology (HIT) is dramatically changing the health care landscape and impacting the Title X network. Your ability to access and share digital patient information is essential for your program's sustainability and for leveraging partnerships with funders, payers, and patients alike. Use this community to your advantage by posting questions, comments, and resources.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) reduced barriers to accessing health insurance programs for many of the key populations that Title X clinics serve. Though legislation has paved the way for healthcare coverage, many Title X clients and potential clients remain uninsured and require assistance to identify and enroll in appropriate health care plans.

Males have an important role to play in the planning of families and preventing unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections – adherence to contraceptive methods increases when both partners are involved.  The Implementing Male Services Community of Practice will provide a forum to support Title X clinic administrators and others in their efforts to improve and increase male services.
