Postpartum family planning (PPFP) refers to the initiation of family planning services during the 12-month period following delivery, and PPFP has the potential to reach large numbers of women with life-saving information and services, which aids in the prevention of unintended pregnancies and associated potentially adverse health outcomes.
Studies show during their first year postpartum, more than 95% of women want to delay or avoid pregnancy, yet 70% of women are not using contraception.
This research brief presents findings from a prospective mixed methods study in Cameroon conducted as a collaboration between the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) and Evidence to Action (E2A) projects. In particular, the study focused on evaluating the added-value of the leadership development program on E2A’s PPFP clinical training program.
