Contract


Position Description

Missouri Family Health Council, Inc. (MFHC), is seeking Family Planning Clinical Consultants to support health centers located in Northeast, Southeast and Central Missouri involved in The Right Time initiative, a multi-year family planning collaborative aimed at reducing unintended pregnancies in the state of Missouri.

 

The Right Time is a six-year initiative, funded by Missouri Foundation for Health, that is based on the simple belief that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue the future they want, including if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant. Recognizing that the decision always rests with the patient, the effort – through education and awareness – aims to empower individuals to take control of their own health by improving information about, and removing barriers to, contraceptive services. With a focus on health disparities, the goal of The Right Time initiative is to reduce Missouri’s unintended pregnancy rate by 10 percent.

 

MFHC, a private nonprofit based in Jefferson City, champions access for every individual to culturally sensitive, quality, sexual and reproductive health education and services. We achieve our mission by improving quality services through programming, and advocating to break down systemic policy barriers which decrease health equity and impede access to care. MFHC serves as the Program Offices for the Missouri Foundation for Health-funded initiative, The Right Time, and is the state’s sole Title X family planning program grantee.
