Family Planning Module: 3. Counselling for Family Planning

Study Session 3  Counselling for Family Planning


The primary objective of counselling in the context of family planning is to help people in your village decide on the number of children they wish to have, and when to have them. You can help them to choose a contraceptive method that is personally and medically appropriate. Through your counselling sessions with them, you will make sure that they understand how to use their chosen method correctly, to ensure safe and effective contraceptive protection.

In this study session, you will learn about the general concepts and principles of family planning counselling, the steps for conducting family planning counselling, and the factors affecting counselling outcomes.
