This supplement provides Title X prescribers with evidence-based resources for diagnosing and managing hypertension. We recommend that you refer to the “Hypertension Prevention and Control Improvement Toolkit” for background information and materials to help your family planning program develop a systematic, comprehensive method to improve care. If your site opts to provide services for people with hypertension, this focused resource will assist clinical services providers with information and materials to manage uncomplicated hypertension. For many individuals, family planning care settings may be their primary point of health care access and sole interface with the health care system.
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.
