Monitoring Postpartum Family Planning: A challenge for routine information systems

Publish Date: September 2017
Author: MCSP

The purpose of this brief is to share examples of how to capture the number of women who receive family planning before discharge after giving birth in a facility – one important element of postpartum family planning (PPFP). The brief includes examples from four countries. These approaches are used in facilities where the USAID-funded Maternal and Child Survival Program supports PPFP implementation. They are not yet part of national health management information systems (HMIS).
