An effective implants program not only focuses on quality services, but also seeks to educate, raise awareness, and build stakeholder buy-in and client/community demand for implants services. This section of the Implants Toolkit contains information and tools to help policy makers, program managers, and family planning promoters build a supportive environment for implants, including resources related to behavior change communication (BCC). Additionally, the resources and materials can help reach many women who are reluctant to try implants because they are misinformed or need a trusted source of information.
This section of the Implants Toolkit includes general health communication guidance and tools (available on this page), as well as communication materials on implants.
