Revitalizing Underutilized Family Planning Methods: Assessing the Impact of an Integrated Supply-Demand Vasectomy Initiative in Ghana

In 2003, the Ghana Health Service, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Ghana, and EngenderHealth collaborated on an initiative in the Accra and Kumasi metropolitan areas to improve acceptance of vasectomy by coupling site interventions that focus on quality and access (supply-side interventions) with effective and strategic interventions aimed at increasing public awareness (demand-side interventions). This document describes that initiative and discusses the impact and the lessons learned.
