Title X, the Domestic Gag Rule, and the HIV Response

February 2019

The Title X National Family Planning Program is the only federal grant program dedicated to providing individuals with comprehensive family planning and related health services. Created in 1970, Title X offers care to low-income or uninsured individuals through the provision of grants to public health departments, community health organizations, and other nonprofit agencies. By providing women, their partners, and their families with a range of birth control methods, cancer screening, and other reproductive health services, Title X funding reduces unintended pregnancies, allows the early diagnosis of potentially deadly cancers including breast and cervical cancers, and promotes healthy child development.
