A Successful National Program for Expanding Vasectomy Services: The Experience of the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social

This paper describes the innovative strategies adapted by IMSS to improve the availability and use of vasectomy. These strategies included: introducing and adopting no-scalpel vasectomy as the program's standard technique; conducting training at the service sites for all personnel involved with vasectomy services using a novel "site training" approach; removing barriers by providing access to vasectomy at the primary-care level; and providing ongoing supervision and technical support to the local service delivery sites.
