Assessment, Monitoring & Evaluation

Integrating healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy (HTSP) information and messages into trainings, client education, and maternal and child health services can lead to changes in the behaviors of providers and clients that result in improved health outcomes. To assess the health effects of providing information on the benefits of HTSP, program managers and researchers need to use good indicators and establish effective systems of monitoring and evaluation to measure uptake of family planning services and improved pregnancy spacing. 

In this section of the Toolkit, you will find examples of indicators that programs have used to measure HTSP outcomes, as well as programmatic guidance for implementing monitoring and evaluating HTSP approaches.
