The Family Planning Program seeks to make affordable birth control and reproductive
health services available to uninsured, low-income individuals and others who have
difficulty getting family planning services. One of the features of the Family Planning Program is the
importance placed on birth control and reproductive health education and counseling.
The goal of the Family Planning program is to increase planned pregnancies and
improve the reproductive health of individuals and communities.
Males are encouraged to participate
in family planning and reproductive health services offered.
