MCHIP and PSI Report of PPIUCD Services: Start-Up to Scale-Up Regional Meeting, Zambia
In April 2013, MCHIP and Population Services International (PSI) convened a regional meeting in Africa to advance integration of postpartum intrauterine contraceptive device (PPIUCD) services into maternal health services. A total of 59 participants from 10 countries shared successes and challenges based on their country experiences. The meeting entailed: focused discussions on the role of advocacy, community engagement, and service delivery strategies within programs that offer PPIUCD; an opportunity to observe PPIUCD services in Zambia; a forum to discuss successes and challenges to implementing quality PPIUCD services; and an opportunity to develop tools for drafting country-team action items. Presentations on country experiences in India, Tanzania, and Zambia are also available.
