Family planning services
for women and men
Indiana Family Health Council (IFHC) is a private, not-for-profit organization that funds 26 reproductive health clinics across the state to make healthcare and education available and accessible to all, including teens, no matter insurance coverage or income level. Of these clinics, 24 are open to the public.
Focusing on our goal of making healthcare education and resources available to all, in 2019, Indiana Family Council sponsored clinics have done the following:
- Provided services to 20,970 patients across 83 of the 92 Indiana counties
- Conducted 9,364 HIV tests
- Tested 77.5 percent of women under the age of 25 for chlamydia
- Distributed 550,000 million condoms across the state of Indiana
- Provided education and counseling resulting in 83.6 percent of women choosing to adopt a moderately or most effective form of contraception
- Performed 16,199 chlamydia/gonorrhea tests
The percent of women under 25 Tested for Chlamydia has increased from 68% to 79%.
The percent of patients Tested for HIV has increased from 26% to 38%.
Our goal was to have 70 percent of women under the age of 25 be tested for chlamydia by the end of the calendar year. Left untreated at that age, the disease can lead to a lot of complications including infertility. Chlamydia is often known as a silent disease, which is why it is our goal to get as many women tested as possible.
Every $1.00 of public funding spent on contraceptive and preventive health services in the US saves $7.09 in public expenditures.
The Indiana Family Health Council promotes and facilitates family planning and reproductive health services for those in need.
