Skilled Providers

What Is It?

Providers well-trained in family planning who are compassionate, knowledgeable, skilled, motivated and confident. When your program’s demand generation activities prompt women and men to seek family planning services, well-trained providers must be prepared and available meet clients’ needs. Positive provider-client interactions can have a profound effect on uptake of voluntary family planning in a community and help ensure clients leave with their chosen family planning method.
