For over 30 years, CAI has provided expert family planning training and technical assistance to family planning organizations. We are pleased to have served as the federally funded Family Planning Regional Training Centers for Region II and IV. In September 2012, the Family Planning Regional Training Centers were restructured as national training centers around key family planning service topic areas. While we are no longer your Title X Regional Training Center, we can still be a training resource for you.
As the long-time Region II Title X Family Planning Center (New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands), CAI provided measurable, outcomes-focused training and technical assistance to all levels of staff in Title X family planning agencies throughout the region. Created in 1970, the Title X program has been the only federal program solely dedicated to family planning and reproductive health with a mandate to provide a broad range of acceptable and effective family planning methods and services.
Our innovative and evidence-based training programs built the capacity of more than 80 family planning agencies (who operated multiple clinic sites) to provide clinic services to over 500,000 users annually on issues related to:
- contraceptive methods counseling
- patient education and counseling
- sexual and reproductive health, clinical exams
- STI and HIV screenings and treatment
- pregnancy diagnosis and counseling
Our trainings and technical assistance efforts focused on concepts related to program management, fiscal sustainability, clinical services, and outreach and education. Trainings were tailored to the needs of the local clinic sites using multiple modalities for training delivery including on-site/face to face trainings and distance learning.
