The NCTCFP sits down again with two of their first interviewees, Raissa Ameh and Evelyn Kieltyka, to discuss how COVID-19 has continued to shape their clinic networks and what they've learned over the past year and a half in delivering Title X and other family planning services.
The NCTCFP talks with Dr. Maithe Enriquez, from the Research College of Nursing and Infectious Disease Associates of Kansas City, about long-covid, or post-acute-covid syndrome, and how family planning providers can recognize cases and counsel their patients. This is a part of the NCTCFP's ongoing series of podcasts about COVID-19.
The NCTCFP speaks with Dr. Mati Hlatshwayo Davis, an infectious disease physician from St. Louis, about racial and geographic disparities that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic and how family planning providers can help address those disparities in their own practices.
Founded as the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning (NCTCFP) in 2006, we changed our name to the Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) in 2023. We have been funded by the Office of Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services since inception and remain the primary source of clinical training for those providing sexual and reproductive health care in federally-funded settings.
Having served the Title X network for nearly two decades, our team of clinical experts recognized that the term “family planning” falls short of describing the client-centered and inclusive sexual and reproductive health services we offer, especially in an increasingly urgent and rapidly shifting healthcare landscape.
The newly-renamed Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) continues to provide evidence-based clinical training and resources to healthcare providers in Title X settings through increased healthcare quality, equity, and access.
