As the administrator of California’s Title X (ten) federal family planning program – the largest Title X system in the nation - Essential Access Health supports the delivery of core family planning and related preventive health services for low-income and uninsured patients across the state. We are also fighting to protect Title X’s mandate to provide comprehensive family planning services for all in federal court. Learn more about our fight to #FixTitleX.
