Project Example

Family Planning Dialogue Guide for Community Health Volunteers in DRC

Community Health Workers use this guide during home visits or group discussions to conduct conversations about important FP/RH issues, such as spacing of pregnancies for the health of mothers and children, the importance of visiting health clinics for FP/RH counseling and antenatal care, and the use and benefits of modern contraceptives: the pill, condoms, and injectables.

Over 3,000 relais communautaire (community health volunteers) in the provinces of East Kasai, West Kasai, and Katanga were trained to use the Family Planning Dialogue Guide developed by the project.
