Monitoring Postpartum Family Planning: A challenge for routine information systems
The purpose of this brief is to share examples of how to capture the number of women who receive family planning before discharge after giving birth in a facility – one important element of postpartum family planning (PPFP). The brief includes examples from four countries. These approaches are used in facilities where the USAID-funded Maternal and Child Survival Program supports PPFP implementation. They are not yet part of national health management information systems (HMIS).
