Office of Population Affairs

The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health's (OASH’s) OPA administers Title X, which remains the only federal program dedicated to family planning services and serves over 4 million low-income, uninsured patients who otherwise would not have access to care. Under the Trump administration, OPA’s Title X grant guidelines deemphasized the importance of birth control in favor of abstinence and “natural family planning,” such as the rhythm method, and OPA granted Title X funds to an organization that does not believe in distributing birth control. Under the Biden administration, the integrity of OPA must be restored.
