Title X

About Title X

Title X (ten) of the Public Health Service Act was established in 1970 with broad bipartisan support. As the nation’s only dedicated source of federal funding for family planning services, Title X provides high quality, confidential family planning and other related sexual and reproductive health services to low-income and uninsured individuals who may otherwise lack access to health care. Annually, the national Title X network provides healthcare to nearly 4 million adults and teens. The Title X program is administered by the federal Office of Population Affairs (OPA).
