The Global Health eLearning Center offers several courses on various family planning methods:

  • Family Planning 101 offers basic information relevant to voluntary FP programs and services, including unmet need, long- and short-acting methods, access and service delivery issues, contraceptive security, and FP considerations for clients with unique needs.
  • Hormonal Methods of Contraception provides information that program managers and clinic staff can use to improve the quality of care in providing hormonal contraceptive methods, including vaginal rings, implants, injectables, and IUDs. It also examines ways to meet the rising demand for hormonal methods and looks at service delivery methods to reach contraceptive users in their communities.
  • The IUD course explains the mechanism and advantages of intrauterine devices (primarily the Copper T-380A), as well as discusses what can be done to increase demand for IUD use in many countries.
