Increase the number and quality of private sector health services
SHOPS Plus is increasing access to and availability of quality private sector services through mobile outreach by local partner ACDEV. Mobile outreach teams offer access to a package of health services, including counseling, short- and long-acting contraceptive methods, and cervical cancer screening. SHOPS Plus will also work with youth centers and associations to continue to increase access to and use of voluntary family planning and sexual and reproductive health information and services for youth.
In addition, SHOPS Plus is working with select private providers to pilot an adapted version of the Tutorat 3.0 methodology, a comprehensive quality improvement approach currently being implemented in the public sector that targets a wide array of quality care factors and services. The Tutorat 3.0 methodology helps to build the capacity of supervisors at the site level to examine weaknesses in quality and develop an action plan for addressing them.
