Educational Tour Guidance Package
Educational tours can be an important component of an advocacy strategy that seeks to expand access to family planning services by introducing community-based access to injectables (CBA2I). In the past decade, educational tours have proven helpful in advancing community-based access to injectable contraceptives in a number of countries. The materials in this Educational Tour Guidance Package have been created and used by countries that have hosted or participated in educational tours in the past. The contents include sample communications documents; a sample agenda and tour program; a budget template; slides and documents to facilitate the formulation of learning objectives, reflections on the tour, and plans for moving forward; and examples of an executive summary and full summary report. Most of the items are available in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint format so that they can be easily adapted.
