Providing Reproductive Health Services to Young Married Women and First-time Parents in West Africa: A Supplemental Training Module for Facility-based Health Care Providers
This 1-day training is intended for facility-based health care providers (e.g., doctors, nurses, midwives) who have already received training in adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health (AYSRH). Alternatively, it could be integrated into a broader AYSRH training. The module covers topics including healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy (HTSP), nonjudgmental counseling for young married women and FTPs, and the particular challenges and pressures concerning childbearing faced by young married women and FTPs. The training consists of trainer presentations (slides included) and participatory small and large group activities.
