In support of community-based emergency contraception
Dawn S. Chin-Quee, John Stanback, Victoria Graham
Community-based family planning is a proven, high-impact practice for extending reproductive health services to women, particularly those in hard-to-reach places. Accordingly, many community-based family planning programs facilitate and support the provision of condoms, oral contraceptive pills and even injectable contraceptives by community health workers (CHWs). Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs)—a method for which there are no contraindications and the user herself can determine need—are not routinely included among the contraceptive methods provided by community health workers.
