The Female Sterilization Standardization Plus Initiative: Building Capacity for Providing Minilaparotomy in Four Countries

While a large number of couples in developing countries have an unmet need to limit future births, many of these countries lack easy access to female and male sterilization services. RESPOND undertook an activity to increase service providers’ capacity to deliver high-quality female sterilization services in four countries in Africa. Its objective was to standardize the skills of minilaparotomy trainers in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi, who would then conduct cascade trainings with additional providers in their home countries.
