This Process Brief is intended for program implementers who would like to use a participatory approach to inform program design in family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH).

This brief pulls from experiences and lessons learned during the USAID-funded Transform/PHARE project. Involvement of target audiences and key influencers, in particular, has emerged as a critical area of learning. The brief reflects on PHARE’s engagement of influencers for program design and offers lessons and recommendations for a successful and meaningful participatory process for future FP programming.
