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.
