National Training Centers

In response to the pressing needs of the Title X agencies and the people they serve, the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) streamlined its training model with a basis in implementation science.

The National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement will work in collaboration with OPA to address the needs of Title X family planning service grantees and providers.

In 2016, OPA awarded a cooperative agreement to JSI Research & Training Institute (JSI), in partnership with the World Health Organization Collaborating Center and the National Implementation Research Network at the University of North Carolina (UNC), to support the National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement. The primary purpose of the National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement is to ensure that personnel working in Title X family planning service projects have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to effectively deliver high quality family planning services. The National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement builds on existing resources to strengthen the capacity of the Title X network.

The National Training Center for Service Delivery Improvement will work closely with the National Clinical Training Center, at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The two grantees will work together to build on previous OPA-supported trainings, add value, and strengthen the Title X network as a whole.
