Family planning: a global handbook for providers
This new handbook is an essential resource for health-care professionals providing contraceptive methods. The handbook is the successor to The Essentials of Contraceptive Technology, first published in 1997 by the Center for Communication Programs at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Experts from around the world have contributed to the development of the handbook, and many major international organizations and professional organizations working in family planning have endorsed and adopted this guidance. It is one of WHO’s “Family Planning Cornerstones”, a companion to the Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use, the Selected practice recommendations for contraceptive use and the Decision-making tool for family planning clients and providers.
