The Indiana Family Health Council (IFHC) has cultivated a network of partnerships to better provide reproductive health and family planning health care, including the Indiana Family Planning Partnership and Infertility Prevention Project.
Indiana Family Planning Partnership
Since 2008, IFHC has received Title V, Title XX and TANF family planning funding from the Indiana State Department of Health that supports Family Planning Resource programs across Indiana. All funded projects adhere to the federal Title X medical standards for the most up-to-date reproductive health care available.
Infertility Prevention Project
IFHC receives support from the Indiana State Department of Health, Division of HIV/STD through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the Office of Population Affairs (OPA)- Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), for the Infertility Prevention Project (IPP). IPP coordinates chlamydia and gonorrhea screening and treatment services for low-income, sexually active women attending family planning, STI, and other women’s healthcare clinics. This program has shown that routine screening of women can reduce chlamydia prevalence and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) incidence in women.
In addition, IFHC partners with a referral network of medical, educational and counseling providers in the communities it serves.
