Postpartum Family Planning (PPFP) Toolkit

Family planning offered in the first year postpartum provides an opportunity to meet the needs of women who want to prevent unintended pregnancies or who want to delay having more children. Yet, globally, nearly 65% of women in their first postpartum year have an unmet need for family planning services.

This toolkit provides a comprehensive collection of best practices and evidence-based tools and documents on postpartum family planning (PPFP) developed through the ACCESS-FP Program and continued under the MCHIP project. The toolkit will assist policymakers, program managers, trainers, and service providers to develop and implement effective service delivery approaches that address the family planning needs of the postpartum women they serve.

Use the navigation menu on the right side of this page to explore PPFP topics and information within the Toolkit. The tools and resources available here will help you implement a variety of PPFP-related activities. Click on the full-text resources to open or download them to your computer.

If you have an experience to share about the introduction or provision of PPFP services, we invite you to tell us about it through the feedback form where you can also suggest new resources.
