Advocates and decision makers need access to digestible, engaging syntheses of evidence in order to make the case for policies and national family planning guidelines that facilitate access to long-acting reversible contraceptive methods such as implants.

This section of the Implants Toolkit provides key advocacy briefs and tools that make the case for implants as safe and highly effective long-acting methods of contraception. These ready-to-use informational briefs can inform donors, policy makers, and other key stakeholders about the benefits of offering implants and other long-acting and permanent methods.

This section of the Toolkit also houses international guidance on developing or updating family planning policies to support the provision of implants, as well as examples of strong family planning policies.

Visit the Service Delivery section of the Toolkit for a comprehensive list of service delivery guidelines.
