Note: The Family Planning Training Resource Package (TRP) is regularly updated to reflect the latest guidance. Results of the Evidence for Contraceptive Options and HIV Outcomes (ECHO) Study released in June 2019 are not yet reflected in the TRP. We are in the process of determining what updates need to be made to the TRP. In the meantime, please consult these resources:

World Health Organization (WHO) guidance statement, Contraceptive eligibility for women at high risk of HIV | ECHO Consortium website | United Nations joint statement on ECHO results | Results 4 Informed Choice website

The TRP does reflect the newest editions of Family Planning: A Global Handbook for Providers (3rd Edition, 2018) and the WHO’s Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use (5th Edition, August 2015) and Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use (3rd Edition, 2016).

The TRP contains curriculum components and tools needed to design, implement, and evaluate training. It offers essential resources for family planning (FP) and reproductive health trainers, supervisors, and program managers. The entire package is designed to support up-to-date training on family planning and reproductive health.

    I recently had an opportunity to interview Dr. Candace Lew of Pathfinder International about a trip she took to Afghanistan to work with the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) and UNFPA in November-December of 2013.

    Afghanistan is a country of 35 million people. It has a total fertility rate of 5.1 and a maternal mortality ratio (MMR) of 327 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births overall, but in rural areas the MMR rises to 417 per 100,000 live births. Currently about 20% of women in Afghanistan use modern contraception. The most popular modern contraceptive methods are injectables (7.2%) and pills (6%).

    I conducted an Interview recently with Stembile (Tembi) Mugore, Senior Adviser for Performance Improvement at the Evidence to Action (E2A) Project. E2A focused this workshop on family planning counseling, but was also able to provide a general introduction to the TRP and give each participant a flash drive that contained all the TRP modules.

    Tembi and colleagues from the E2A Project organized a pre-service training workshop for nurse educators in Tanzania in July/August 2015. The workshop was planned and presented in collaboration with the Department of Human Resources for Health at the Tanzania Ministry of Health and the East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community College of Nursing (ECSACON). The E2A team also worked with ECSA before and after the workshop to build its capacity to support similar workshops and trainings in the future.
