Interactive: Track Texas' Spending on Primary Care for Women

In an effort to rebuild the state’s women’s health infrastructure following the drastic cuts they made in 2011, Texas lawmakers in 2013 added $100 million to the budget to expand primary health care services for women in the 2014-15 biennium. They earmarked 60 percent of those funds for family planning services. Use this interactive to see how much the Department of State Health Services has awarded individual regions for primary women's health care in 2014, the percentage of that money expected to be spent on family planning and the total anticipated clients.

Variations in the percentage of women receiving family planning services depend on the state's contracts with providers in those regions.
