How to Create Successful Vasectomy Programs


The purpose of this brief is to help advocates, program planners, policymakers and Ministries of Health establish policies, allocate resources, and advocate for successful vasectomy programs.

It uses the Supply-Enabling EnvironmentDemand (SEED) Programming Model (TM) which has been established as a useful global framework for sexual and reproductive health programming. In the SEED Model, the following three components must be mutually reinforced in order to create and sustain successful vasectomy programs: 1) creating, increasing, and sustaining demand for vasectomy services, 2) increasing supply of vasectomy services, and 3) creating an enabling environment for vasectomy programs.
