Providing family planning information and services to postpartum women during their infants’ immunization visits provides an opportunity to reach women with unmet need for family planning. While evidence of the effect of integration on immunization services is limited, it is possible that effective integration may result in strengthened health systems, more focus and attention brought to immunization services and outcomes, and more efficient use of staff time and resources. To be successful, integrated immunization and family planning service provision requires actions that support family...

Healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy (HTSP) is an approach to family planning that helps women and families delay, space, or limit their pregnancies to achieve the healthiest outcomes for women, newborns, infants, and children. HTSP works within the context of free and informed contraceptive choice and takes into account fertility intentions and desired family size. This Toolkit supports evidence-based recommendations from the World Health Organization and USAID that: Women should delay their first pregnancy until at least age 18. After a live birth, women should wait at...

Maternal, infant, and young child nutrition (MIYCN) and family planning (FP) programs and services are often perceived as distinct, yet integration of these interventions can be mutually beneficial for mothers and their children. For example, exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months after birth not only protects the infant from becoming malnourished but also meets the mother’s contraceptive needs if she practices the lactational amenorrhea method (LAM). The intersection of nutrition and family planning is not limited to outcomes. Synergies exist in terms of interventions as well,...

The toolkit will assist policymakers, program managers, trainers, and...

People in emergency settings often face sexual and gender-based violence and increased exposure to reproductive health threats. As...
