MCSP is working to expand access to high-quality family planning services and contribute to India’s FP2020 commitments. Building on the success of USAID’s predecessor Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program, MCSP advocates for adoption of evidence-based approaches, strategies, interventions and solutions to strengthen the delivery of contraceptive services with an aim of ending preventable maternal and child deaths.
The program is founded on the tenets of informed choice, respectful care, gender-sensitivity, and community participation. We provide technical support to the Government of India in expanding the contraceptive options by including newer, proven modern contraceptive methods — progesterone-only birth control pills, Centchroman and injectables — and delivering related services in the public health system.
