Announcement of Availability of Funds for a Training and Technical Assistance Project to Support the Title X Family Planning Program

The goal of this announcement is to fund a Family Planning National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement (FPNTC-SDI) through a cooperative agreement.

The overarching goal of OPA is to improve reproductive health outcomes for men, women and adolescents by reducing teen and unplanned

credit:


pregnancies, supporting optimal birth spacing, lowering the rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STD), and improving birth outcomes.

The FPNTC-SDI will contribute to these goals by supporting the sustained delivery of quality family planning services.

Quality family planning services were defined in U. S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and OPA clinical recommendations entitled “Providing Quality Family Planning Services” (QFP), which were published in CDC’s MMWR in April 201 4. [1] QFP defines ‘family planning’ services as those that help individuals and/or couples achieve their desired number and spacing of healthy children, which include:
contraceptive services, pregnancy testing and counseling, services to help clients achieve pregnancy, basic infertility services, STD and other preconception health services.

The primary purpose of the funded FPNTC-SDI is to ensure that personnel working in Title X family planning service projects have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to effectively deliver high quality family planning services.

However, this FOA recognizes that training, including more intensive forms of training provided as technical assistance, should be aligned with efforts to strengthen the health care system so that it supports OPA’s mission of delivering high quality family planning services, and so that the system is sustainable and capable of adapting to a changing health care environment.

The primary target population for the FPNTC-SDI will be the approximately 90 Title X service grantees, who support a network of more than 4,100 services sites nationwide serving approximately 4. 1 million clients each year.

Several service grantee networks rely on sub-recipient agencies that directly oversee a number of service sites, so the Training Center may also provide training and technical assistance at the sub-recipient and service site level as a way to support service grantee efforts.

(For more information about the Title X program, see www.opa.gov.) While the training and technical assistance materials developed in this project are for the purpose of training Title X service grantees, these materials also may be of use to providers of family planning services that are not funded by the Title X program but whose work supports the overarching goals of OPA with respect to reproductive health, such as those working in primary care settings.
