New report on federal family planning program
Date:5/26/2009

A REVIEW OF THE HHS FAMILY PLANNING PROGRAM: MISSION, MANAGEMENT, AND MEASUREMENT OF RESULTS, new from the Institute of Medicine, recommends that family planning be re-established as a core value in public health practice. The report urges the Department of Health and Human Services and Congress to support the Title X program as the leading voice for the nation's family planning effort.

Among the report's recommendations:

  • HHS should reassert the Title X program's original goals of helping individuals plan for desired pregnancies as well as avoid unintended ones.
  • HHS should develop a multiyear, evidence-based strategic plan for the program to help ensure that it is grounded in science.
  • Funding for Title X should be increased so the program can meet its statutory responsibility to provide family planning services to those who cannot obtain them through other sources.
