The HTSP Implementation Kit
The HTSP I-Kit is designed to help program managers address the risks of pregnancies among women aged 35 and older (of advanced maternal age, or AMA) and women having five or more births (high-parity, or HP) in their family planning or maternal and child health programs. It is intended to be used by international or local non-governmental organization (NGOs), government divisions or community group program managers who want to use communication approaches to help reduce AMA and HP pregnancies in their community.
The Kit can be used online or can be downloaded.
The I-Kit is divided into two parts:
- Sections to help review the local data, apply SBCC approaches to design a strategy, integrate AMA and HP into FP and MCH programs, develop an action plan, adapt SBCC communication materials, and prepare a monitoring and evaluation plan.
- Adaptable SBCC communication materials, including: counseling guides for providers/CHWs; a provider poster; client brochures; guides for working with community-based groups, researchers and journalists; and infographics.
The French version of the kit is here.
