​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Office of Family Planning

The Office of Family Planning (OFP) is charged by the California Legislature “to make available to citizens of the State who are of childbearing age comprehensive medical knowledge, assistance, and services relating to the planning of families”.  The purpose of family planning is to provide women and men a means by which they decide for themselves the number, timing, and spacing of their children.

The Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (Family PACT) Program is administered by the California Department of Health Care Services, OFP and has been operating since 1997 to provide family planning and reproductive health services at no cost to California’s low-income (under 200% federal poverty level) residents of reproductive age. The program offers comprehensive family planning services, including contraception, pregnancy testing, and sterilization, as well as sexually transmitted infection testing and limited cancer screening services.  Family PACT serves 1.1 million income eligible men and women of childbearing age through a network of 2,400 public and private providers.​
