Previous policy successes

Below are past CAFP and AAFP resolutions regarding reproductive health that TEACH helped to author, introduce, and/or pass through the American Academy of Family Physicians. Approved policy statements are available via AAFP.

We would be thrilled if you reworked these resolutions to adopt in your own state AFP chapter. Please contact info@teachtraining.org if you would like us to send you a copy of a resolution to edit in Word.
