Objectives of the course:
The training and education of health care workers in developing countries on public health and programmatic approaches for family planning. The training will emphasize on the importance of informed reproductive choices, with the aim of improving the health of women and their families. The course would also include basic knowledge on counselling and informed decision making to highlight the importance of providing appropriate information and ensuring proper choices are made.
Family planning services are usually good entry points for women’s health services, but these are also important components of other services such as antenatal and post-partum care, and even child care, even at the primary health care level in developing countries so as to reach all those in need with equity and efficiency.
The participants, after completion of the course would be expected to act as providers and possible trainers to further health care providers on family planning.
Course validation and certificate:
In order to validate the course and obtain the certificate, participants are required to successfully answer to the multiple choice questions and complete an assignment that provides information on the overall situation of Family Planning in their countries in terms of prevalence, relevant health services data, current country strategies, care services and existing barriers and challenges.
The assignment should be based on a literature search and, if relevant, professional experiences of the course participant. We will provide specific guide and instructions for paperwork assignment.
