Teens Access and Quality Initiative (TAQ) (DP15-1508)
The CDC Division of Reproductive Health is supporting three organizations in the 2015–2020 Teens Access and Quality Initiative (TAQ) cooperative agreement to 1) enhance publicly funded health centers’ capacity to provide youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services and 2) improve the ability of young people to access sexual and reproductive health services if needed. To accomplish the latter, funded organizations work with youth-serving organizations (YSO) to screen and refer young people to care.
The TAQ Clinical Framework [PDF – 1 MB] depicts the overall structure and approach to supporting clinics to improve sexual and reproductive health services for young people.
The TAQ YSO Referral Framework [PDF – 791 KB] depicts the process that youth-serving organizations follow to refer young people to services.
Other important TAQ tools include the following:
- Health Center Organizational Assessment Form [PDF – 387 KB] to assess needs of the health center.
- Health Center Provider Survey Form [PDF – 144 KB] to assess providers’ knowledge and attitudes about adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
- Health Center Youth Survey Form [PDF – 97 KB] to assess referral source(s) that young people receive for services and evaluate the satisfaction with their visit.
- Quarterly Health Center Performance Form [PDF – 85 KB] to assess partner clinics’ quarterly performance on selected sexual and reproductive health measures.
- Annual Health Center Performance Form [PDF – 126 KB] to assess partner clinics’ annual performance on selected sexual and reproductive health measures.
