Happy Holidays & Merry New Year!
Title X of the Public Health Services Act is a critical component of the nation’s public health infrastructure. It is the only federally funded program solely dedicated to providing reproductive healthcare to low-income and uninsured women. The Title X system is the entry point into the healthcare system for millions of American women. Title X clinics are at the forefront of efforts to reduce rates of unintended pregnancy, HIV, sexually transmitted infections, and breast and cervical cancers.
As the Title X grantee in Texas, WHFPT, through its provider network, assists individuals in determining the number and spacing of their children. This promotes positive birth outcomes and healthy families. The education, counseling, and medical services available in Title X-funded clinic settings facilitate the achievement of these goals.
