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