Summary

Through this project, CCI-TAYA will provide 100 uninsured, low-income young women in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area with a free annual family planning visit (birth control counseling and dispensing, testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), cervical and breast cancer screenings, health education). These affordable, timely, and culturally competent services will help youth who are unable to access care in traditional medical settings prevent unplanned pregnancies and STIs.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Over half of all pregnancies in the US are unplanned, and 1 in 3 women in the US will be pregnant at least once before they turn 20. The Washington, DC metro area is no exception to this reality, with the high rates disproportionately impacting Latina women and low-income women. This project will give over 100 women in the region access to affordable, culturally competent, timely, preventive family planning services in order to give them the ability to take control of their reproductive health.

How will this project solve this problem?

CCI-TAYA provides low-cost, high-quality, trusted, bilingual preventive reproductive health services to people ages 12-35 in our main independent clinic location, as well as in two satellite clinic sites located within youth-serving organizations in the DC metro area. In the community, CCI-TAYA provides tailored pregnancy prevention education and outreach services at community events, health fairs, as well as through intensive presentations on reproductive health topics to youth and adults.

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing 100 young women with access to preventive family planning services, CCI-TAYA is not only impacting the lives of those individuals but of everyone in our community. It is clear that this is an issue that impacts all of us when 2/3 of families begun by young unwed mothers live in poverty; 60% of teen mothers drop out of high school; and only 3% get a college degree by age 30. This project gives the youth the chance of reaching their full social, educational, and economic potential.
