The Reproductive Health National Training Center (RHNTC) works in collaboration with the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) and the Office on Women’s Health (OWH) in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health to address the needs of Title X family planning service grantees and providers and Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) grantees and program staff.
The RHNTC exists to ensure that Title X and TPP personnel have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to deliver high-quality services and programs.
Because maternal mortality can be impacted by providing preventive services to Title X and TPP clients, the Office on Women’s Health provides funding to the RHNTC to build Title X and TPP grantees’ capacity to promote women’s health and prevent maternal mortality through increased fertility awareness and improved preconception health.
The RHNTC is managed by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI).
The RHNTC collaborates closely with the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning (CTCFP) at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, which delivers clinical skills training and resources to health care providers in the Tile X and related public health communities.
