What are K4Health Toolkits?

K4Health Toolkits are electronic collections of carefully selected information resources on a particular topic for health policy makers, program managers, and service providers. They are based on a continuous publishing principle that allows them to evolve after publication to capture additional resources and to identify and fill remaining information gaps.

What is the purpose of this toolkit?

  • To provide a repository of information on integrated family planning and immunization service delivery.
  • To make evidence-based information and tools accessible to health professionals and others around the world.

Who developed this toolkit?

The Family Planning & Immunization Integration Toolkit is a collaborative effort among members of the Family Planning & Immunization Integration Working Group, which is co-hosted by MCHIP and FHI 360.

Who are the publishers of the resources?

The resources in this Toolkit were compiled by the Family Planning & Immunization Integration Working Group. Resources selected for inclusion in this Toolkit were published by institutions working throughout the world to promote evidence-based best practices and improve the delivery of family planning and immunization integration. These institutions include USAID, MCHIP, FHI 360, IntraHealth, RTI, Curamericas, JSI, MSH, and others.

What types of resources are included?

This toolkit is not a comprehensive library of all existing materials on family planning and immunization integration but is rather a strategic package of resources to guide program managers at implementing organizations, advocates, and decision makers through the processes of piloting, implementing, and scaling up integrated programs and advocating for policy change. These resources include: 

•Up-to-date global and country-specific background and reference materials to inform advocacy and assist with the design of evidence-based, state-of-the-art programs.

•Job aids, curricula, and other tools to increase the effectiveness and quality of program activities and services.

•Publications that detail key implementation processes and lessons learned.

Who are the intended audiences?

The target audiences for the Toolkit are national family planning and immunization program managers and supervisors, technical advisors, national immunization policy makers, and development partners.
