As the New York State Family Planning Training Center, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. promotes quality reproductive health services through the provision of training, technical assistance and expertise to agencies funded by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Comprehensive Family Planning and Reproductive Health Program (FPP).
The overarching goal of the FPP is to improve the intendedness of pregnancy and improve birth outcomes for high-need women and families while reducing racial, ethnic and economic disparities in those outcomes. Improving reproductive health and reducing associated health disparities are key priorities for the NYSDOH Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant (MCHSBG). The New York State Family Planning Training Center supports these core maternal and child health priorities of New York’s MCHSBG State Action Plan.
