Community-Based Family Planning

Community-based family planning (CBFP) brings family planning (FP) information and services to women and men in the communities where they live, rather than requiring them to travel to health facilities. Ideally, CBFP should be considered as part of the broader health system to ensure that the program provides a sustainable solution for meeting the FP-related health care needs of the population.
This course orients the learner to the essential elements for designing and implementing successful, sustainable CBFP programs. It describes three popular approaches to CBFP—provision by community health workers (CHWs), mobile outreach services, and drug shops—and provides an opportunity for users to practice what they learned using a case study.
