  • Reduce unintended pregnancy
  • Improve pregnancy spacing and outcomes by assuring that comprehensive, quality family planning and reproductive health services are available and accessible to all people in Virginia.

VDH Title X Family Planning services are confidential, low-cost, and available to all people in Virginia. Services include

  • Birth control information, counseling, and supplies, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs) such as IUDs and implants
  • Emergency contraception
  • Pregnancy testing and options counseling
  • Reproductive health exams
  • Cervical, breast, and testicular cancer screening
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections testing and treatment
  • Health education and counseling, including information about abstinence

Have you ordered your FREE condoms?

As part of its efforts to reduce HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI), VDH’s Division of Disease Prevention is committed to making free condoms accessible and available across Virginia, particularly in communities at increased risk of HIV/STIs.  Health districts and community partners are eligible for the VDH Condom Distribution Program.  Organizations may order up to 25,000 condoms for each quarter (100,000 a year) and those with multiple sites may be approved to order more.  Smaller quantities of female condoms and non-latex condoms are also available.  As of January 2017, Trojan Magnum condoms are now available through the condom distribution program.
 
If you would like to participate, please contact Beth Marschak at Elizabeth.Marschak@vdh.virginia.gov or (804) 864-8008.  If you are already a participating agency and need to order more condoms, please fill out the condom order form and follow the instructions to return it to VDH.
