Increasing access to quality family planning services

SHOPS Plus will address provider-related barriers to family planning by addressing training, mentorship, and supervision, which have been inadequate  for building competence and confidence among public and private providers, including doctors, nurses, and especially community health extension workers. The project will focus on equipping providers with the mindset needed to overcome bias and the skills to deliver high quality services in a manner that promotes client choice and empowerment. The project will work on:

  • Supplementing existing curricula and materials to better address provider challenges around gender and method bias
  • Improving and adapting the approach to delivering family planning training for different providers accounting for variations in baseline skills and adult learning needs
  • Developing a cadre of skilled and effective local trainers for building family planning service delivery capacity
