Postpartum Family Planning for Community Health Workers

This LRP provides all of the tools and materials needed to conduct a three-day workshop to prepare CHWs to counsel mothers, families and communities on PPFP. The content covers counseling on suitable FP method choices—primarily for breastfeeding mothers—with a strong emphasis on LAM, and when to make the transition from LAM to another modern FP method. The package also emphasizes the importance of “no missed opportunities” to give women appropriate PPFP messages.
