Training Tools: Providing Family Planning and Reproductive Health to Young Married Women and First-Time Parents in West Africa
This is a collection of three trainings (for CHWs, peer leaders, and facility-based health care providers) to orient them on FTPs and provide them with the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of this important population in their communities. These trainings are designed for use in francophone West Africa, where a significant proportion of adolescent girls aged 15–19 and young women aged 20–24 are married or living in union, but they can easily be adapted for other settings.
