The Hyde County Health Department assists individuals and couples to plan and achieve their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births. This is done through the use of contraceptive methods and the treatment of involuntary infertility.
The goals of Family planning are:
it helps couples avoid unintended pregnancies;
it reduces the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs); and
by addressing the problem of STDs, it helps reduce rates of infertility.
