Infertility affects approximately 10-15% of reproductive-aged couples.

In the United States and globally, health care disparities are pervasive; infertility prevention and treatment are not exceptions. The high price of many services, inaccessibility of medical care, infertility that could have been prevented but was not (e.g., untreated infections), and differences in success rates with treatment pose immense burdens for infertile individuals. As sexual and reproductive care providers, Title X organizations are charged with providing basic infertility care for underserved populations and for those who lack insurance coverage. This AOI highlights the barriers to care people with involuntary childlessness due to infertility face and outlines the importance of equitable, inclusive, and accessible infertility care for all.

The NCTCFP speaks with their very own director, Jacki Witt, JD, MSN, WHNP-BC, FAANP, about basic infertility services and what is covered under the Title X program.

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.
