TCI Global Toolkit: Service Delivery

Family Planning Integration
  • Invest in good documentation and monitoring to help ensure voluntarism and informed choice.
  • Consider home visits if targeting PPFP adoption among first-time, young parents.
  • Offer the broadest range of contraceptive methods possible and make them available prior to maternity discharge.
  • Consider leveraging antenatal care visits to educate clients on contraception.
  • Do not forget men.
  • Encourage facility leadership and adjust management practices based on facility size.

For more detailed country-level PPFP operational guidance, refer to TCI’s experiences in Philippines, East Africa and Francophone West Africa.

  • Address stigma and social and community barriers. 
  • Engage communities and community health workers
  • Engage support networks. 
  • Offer PAC at primary care facilities and allow nurses and midwives to provide care to expand access and reduce costs.
  • Offer a wide range of contraceptive methods. 
  • Encourage and support providers to treat all clients respectfully.
  • Make contraception free or bundle it with the cost of post-abortion treatment.
  • Do not integrate family planning services into mass vaccination campaigns. 
  • Keep family planning messages simple and reinforce provider communication skills via training, job aids and on-site mentoring for vaccinators.
  • Consider systematic screening. 
  • Establish straightforward referral systems that facilitate client access to family planning services. 
  • Ensure a clearly defined client flow to provide both services within a specified window of time.
  • Monitor integration’s impact on both family planning and immunization services and outcomes.
