White Paper on Family Planning (FP) Counselling

This whitepaper aims to analyse the current approaches and practices to FP counselling and the impact that lack of access to counselling can have on clients. The paper brings to attention the reproductive needs of young people, which are different from that of higher parity couples. It also highlights the important role that counselling plays in addressing these varying needs and improving contraceptive behaviour outcomes. In the end it also recommends mechanisms for monitoring quality of counselling.
