The primary project strategy is to provide technical assistance (TA) to the state and district health systems to improve access to quality FP services. Since IUD services has been identified as a major gap in the FP services available in the public health system in India, the project will focus on increasing access to high quality IUD services including post-partum IUD, post abortion IUD and interval IUD services. The project will be implemented over 30 months in Rajasthan and Gujarat. It is designed to improve IUD service delivery by training and coaching providers in 153 facilities that have a caseload of more than 100 deliveries a month. Interventions to strengthen capacity of Districts Health managers, District Data Managers and facility administrators; and community-level communication with women will also be implemented during this time through community volunteers (Accredited Social Health Activists - ASHAs).
The Project Coordinator, EAISI, mentors, supports and provides guidance to the Project Officers in the assigned area to ensure the implementation of the project activities.
