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