Encouraging Family Planning Counseling that Promotes Meaningful Choice
Despite recent gains in the use of modern contraceptives around the world, many women are still dissatisfied with their family planning methods and discontinuation remains high.
In collaboration with health workers, postpartum women, implementers, and policymakers in Malawi, Breakthrough ACTION used behavioral design to develop a package of evidence-based, low-cost solutions that improve the quality of family planning counseling for postpartum women.
An accompanying guide highlights the “how-to” of the solutions so that implementers can consider if they may want to adapt them to their own settings. The guide includes more details and implementation considerations for each solution, downloadable files for each solution, and links to the formative research and evaluation results.
