MCHIP and PSI Report of PPIUD Services: Start-Up to Scale-Up Regional Meeting, Burkina Faso
In February 2014, MCHIP and PSI's Support for International Family Planning Organization (SIFPO) program convened a regional meeting in West Africa to advance integration of postpartum intrauterine device (PPIUD) services into maternal health services. A total of 48 participants from 11 countries shared successes and challenges based on their country experiences.
The meeting provided an interactive forum to exchange learning around implementing quality PPIUD services. It also featured presentations and discussion on the global evidence for PPFP and PPIUD specifically, the launch of the French version of the WHO Programming Strategies for Postpartum Family Planning, and an opportunity to visit PPIUD sites in Burkina Faso. During the meeting, country teams analyzed the status of PPIUD introduction or scale-up in their countries using a scale-up matrix (template provided below) and worked on drafting country-team action items.
The meeting report is available in both English and French versions.
