Provider Behavior Change Approaches to Improve Family Planning Services in the Ouagadougou Partnership Countries: A Landscape Review

Date of Publication
2020

The purpose of this landscaping is to summarize the available evidence on the effectiveness of Provider Behavior Change (PBC) interventions for improving FP services in the Ouagadougou Partnership (OP) countries.

For purposes of this review,  PBC interventions include interventions that go beyond clinical training and support (e.g., technical job aids) and seek to positively influence provider behavior to improve the quality of services, enhance client experiences, increase demand for services, and increase uptake of commodities or adoption of healthier behaviors.

The document synthesizes both published and grey literature, with additional insights gathered from informational interviews about projects that are testing PBC approaches. It also presents current or recent PBC interventions in OP countries that have not been formally evaluated. The findings are summarized along with reflections about possible research and programmatic investments to address challenges and opportunities identified.
