Systematic Screening: A Strategy for Determining and Meeting Client Reproductive Health Needs

This brief focuses on the following points:

  • Systematic screening is a simple process by which health care providers can increase the number of client needs addressed during a single visit.
  • Research shows that systematic screening can increase the number of services received per client visit to a health care facility by as much as 25 percent.
  • Adopting systematic screening can be a cost-effective strategy for programs to offer more services and thus to improve women’s and children’s health. Systematic screening is a USAID best practice.
