Providing Quality Family Planning Services

Providing Quality Family Planning Services (QFP) are recommends from the CDC and the U. S. Office of Population Affairs on how to provide family planning services so that individuals can achieve their desired reproductive life goals.

The recommendations describe:

  • What services should be offered in a family planning visit—i.e., contraceptive services, pregnancy testing and counseling, helping clients achieve pregnancy, basic infertility services, preconception health services, and STD services.
  • How these services should be provided by drawing upon existing recommendations and filling gaps where needed.
  • Services available for female and male clients and special populations, such as adolescents, and provide detailed guidance on contraceptive services.
  • Using the family planning visit to provide selected preventive health services, such as breast and cervical cancer screening.
