Enabling the healthy spacing of pregnancy: Programmatic approaches to expand postpartum IUD (PPIUD) access

Under the Support for International Family Planning Organizations (SIFPO) project funded by USAID, PSI published a technical brief on ‘Enabling the Healthy Spacing of Pregnancy: Programmatic Approaches to Expand Postpartum IUD (PPIUD) Access’. The brief introduces the need for expanded postpartum family planning options, reviews the advantages and disadvantages of the PPIUD, describes the components of successful initiatives to add PPIUD to the range of options for postpartum women, and illustrates three different models for PPIUD service delivery through case studies from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea, Zambia and Pakistan.
