Publish Date: May 2019

Although family planning (FP) services for adult women (and men) and immunization services for infants and young children are critical components of primary health care, with overlapping contact opportunities during the first year postpartum and a shared goal of improving the health of the mother (and father) and baby, these services are often siloed as separate interventions. FP and immunization service integration is considered a “promising” High-Impact Practice (HIP) for FP.

This brief highlights key achievements of, lessons learned by, and recommendations from the FP and Immunization Integration Working Group during the over eight years since its inception.
