Meeting the Need: Strengthening Family Planning Programs

This report is designed as a general resource to help family planning program managers strengthen their programs and meet growing family planning needs. It does not attempt to present a detailed technical analysis of the issues and does not address the many regional and country variations and circumstances related to providing family planning services. Instead, it offers a broad overview of key programmatic considerations. Each subsection includes a list of practical specialized resources and hands-on tools (available online) that can support program managers desiring to bring about programmatic change. It should be emphasized that program managers need not try to simultaneously change all aspects of programming discussed in this report; in some cases focusing on one or two program components can bring about dramatic results. It is hoped that this report will inspire program managers to further investigate ways to strengthen family planning programs so that they may increase contraceptive prevalence and fulfill the reproductive rights of the women and men they serve.
