Increasing Access and Uptake of Family PlanningServices by Strengthening Urban Primary Health Centres & Relieving Client Load at Higher Level Facilities 

This first edition of TCIHC’s PAthways to Scale and Sustainability focuses on the TCI’s guiding principle of ‘leveraging existing systems’. Instead of working outside of existing systems, which can lead to duplication, waste and missed opportunities, TCI works within existing government-and community-led systems to harmonize strategies, plans, funding and technical assistance and, therefore, furthers longer term sustainability. Consequently, implementation of proven interventions becomes the new norm in all sub-systems of the health system, including policies and procedures, human resources, financial and managerial practices.
