TCI University

Designing and implementing successful, evidence-based family planning programs for the urban poor requires ongoing learning and knowledge exchange. Recognizing that adults learn in different ways, TCI University offers opportunities for self-paced as well as blended learning, providing the most useful information, tools, and expertise, in a variety of formats.

TCI University is designed to meet the learning needs of distinct audiences at different stages of the Initiative’s model – from expression of interest to proposal development to implementation.

  • For those new to the Initiative, we welcome you to join our global Community of Practice and learn more about the TCI demand-driven model.
  • For those working on a proposal or implementing a program, take a look at the global Toolkit for practical guidance on how to strengthen advocacy efforts, improve service delivery, generate demand for family planning services, minimize supply-side barriers and leverage crucial resources.
  • For our Accelerator Hubs, please visit the Training and/or Coaching space to request technical assistance and access special tools, which will be developed and refined based on demand.
