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 IUDs.
This section of the Toolkit provides advocates, decision makers, donors, and others with key advocacy briefs and tools, international guidance on developing or updating family planning policies to support the provision of IUDs, and examples of strong family planning policies.
Visit the Service Delivery section of the Toolkit for a comprehensive list of service delivery guidelines.
