Family Planning Resource Guide: 2021 Edition

Consider this your holiday gift guide for family planning resources

Introducing the second edition of the Family Planning Resource Guide.

At Knowledge SUCCESS, we aim to collect, synthesize, and curate knowledge produced by innovators around the world working towards the common goal of expanding access to quality family planning and reproductive health services and information. At this time of year, we engage in a critical exercise of stepping back and reflecting on the ground-breaking work our community has produced over the course of the year. With that, we curated this year’s Family Planning Resource Guide, packaged like a holiday gift guide.

Though you are not “buying” these tools this holiday season, we know you will find this collection of diverse tools from a variety of projects useful, informative, and timely.

To compile the guide, Knowledge SUCCESS asked projects funded by USAID Population and Reproductive Health, including our content partners, to submit resources that they have developed or used. Partners shared a range of high-quality tools, which we categorized by six thematic areas:

  1. Program design, advisory, or planning
  2. Youth engagement in family planning
  3. Expanding voluntary family planning choices and method mix
  4. Social and behavior change communication in family planning
  5. Population, Health, and Environment
  6. Cross-cutting digital tools for family planning

We’d like to extend a warm “thank you” to all our partners who submitted resources for this guide. We hope this 2021 edition of the Family Planning Resource Guide helps you to see what new tools or resources were developed this year, and how they can be applied to your work.
