CDC will carefully consider all comments submitted in preparation of the final document. In 2017–2019 in the United States, 65% of women aged 15–49 years used contraception; the most common contraceptive methods used were female sterilization, oral contraceptive pills, implants and intrauterine devices, and male condoms [1]. The majority (61%) of U.S. women aged 18–49 years have ongoing or potential need for contraceptive services [2]. Similarly, in 2010–2016, about 60% of men aged 15– 44 years in the United States needed family planning [3]. Equitable access to evidence-based, high quality care is critical to meeting the needs of persons seeking contraceptive services, improving reproductive autonomy, and reducing unintended pregnancy in the United States [2]. Since 2010, CDC has published evidence-based recommendations on contraception provision. These recommendations are intended to assist health care providers when they counsel patients about choice and use of contraceptive methods, with the goal of reducing medical barriers to contraception access. U.S. Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use, 2016 (US MEC) comprises recommendations for the use of specific contraceptive methods by persons with certain characteristics or medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and being postpartum or breastfeeding [4]. U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use, 2016 (US SPR) addresses common, yet sometimes complex, issues regarding initiation and use of specific contraceptive methods, such as examinations or tests needed before starting a method and management of side effects [5]. Both guidance documents are adapted from global guidance developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and are based on review of the scientific evidence and consultation with national experts. CDC partners with other federal agencies and professional organizations in the development, dissemination, and implementation of the guidance documents to improve access to contraception and quality of family planning services. CDC is committed to ensuring that the US MEC and US SPR recommendations are reviewed and updated as new scientific evidence becomes available. Working with WHO, CDC continuously monitors peer-reviewed literature and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Aug 18, 2021 Jkt 253001 updates recommendations as needed, with comprehensive reviews approximately every 5 years. CDC is currently planning for the next update of the US MEC and US SPR and will consider public comments when determining the scope of the guidance update. CDC is seeking feedback from health care providers, professional organizations, community-based organizations, organizations that seek to improve reproductive health, patient advocacy groups, and the public. The current US MEC may be found at the Supplementary Materials tab of the docket and at https://www.cdc.gov/ reproductivehealth/contraception/ mmwr/mec/summary.html.

program for states and jurisdictions submit an annual report to the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services regarding the program and

    OCC, in collaboration with the Health Resources and Services 
Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau awarded grants for the 
Tribal MIECHV Program (Tribal Home Visiting) to support cooperative 
agreements to conduct community needs assessments; plan for and 
implement high-quality, culturally-relevant, evidence-based home 
visiting programs in at-risk tribal communities; establish, measure, 
and report on progress toward meeting performance measures in six

    After the first grant year, Tribal Home Visiting grantees must 
comply with the requirement to submit an Annual Report to the Secretary 
that should feature activities carried out under the program during the
