This training module is part of a series entitled Contraceptive
Technology and Reproductive Health Series and can be
used as an interactive self-study program or as a participatory,
group training experience. The series was developed and produced
by Family Health International (FHI) with funding from the U.S.
Agency for International Development (USAID) and assistance
from other agencies concerned with international family planning.
Other currently available topics are:
- Barrier Methods
- Client-Provider Interaction

- Female and Male Sterilization
- Injectable Contraceptives
- Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)
- Introduction to Contraceptive Methods: An Overview

All modules are available in hardback form with slides in English,
French and Spanish.
The purpose of these training modules is to meet the continuing
educational needs of family planning practitioners and policy-makers
in developing countries by providing the most current information
available about contraceptive technology. The information in
the modules is intended to be used at workshops or seminars
for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, family planning counselors,
midwives, or other trained health care personnel. The information
is appropriate for those with a basic knowledge of and familiarity
with family planning programs and methods of contraception,
but can also be used in pre-service training settings for medical
and nursing students.
