Important Note, June 2015:
Several modules on this site may be affected by revisions to the Medical Eligibility Criteria (MEC) for Contraceptive Eligibility being released soon by the World Health Organization. The Training Resource Package team will be working to update the content of this module in the coming months. You may still use the existing materials, but please review the Executive Summary for important changes. The new MEC Wheel can be used as an interim resource until the full revisions are released.
For your convenience, we have created a brief presentation summarizing these updates.
The Training Resource Package for Family Planning (TRP) contains curriculum components and tools needed to design, implement, and evaluate training. It offers essential resources for family planning (FP) and reproductive health trainers, supervisors, and program managers. The entire package is designed to support up-to-date training on family planning and reproductive health.
The TRP was developed using evidence-based technical information from World Health Organization (WHO) publications:
- Family Planning: A Global Handbook for Providers;
- the latest WHO Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use (about to be revised--please read the Executive Summary for the 5th Edition); and
- Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use.
