The Program Management section of the Injectables Toolkit includes information and tools to help family planning program managers fulfill the essential management functions of an injectables program.

Continual quality improvement is key to effective family planning programs that offer injectables. Supportive supervision is essential to high-quality programming and safe injection practices, as is community and staff involvement in assessing and improving health services.

These resources will help program managers develop quality programs and strengthen existing programs by increasing their efficiency to meet rising demand for injectables. For information on community-based access to injectables, please visit the Community-Based Access to Injectable Contraceptives Toolkit.
