Illustrative Module Session Plan - Male Condom

The session plan summarizes how the resources and documents in the module should be used to achieve the learning objectives. Each section of the session plan addresses a module topic, such as characteristics of the method or medical eligibility. The slides to be shown with each section and appropriate handouts are identified. All the module materials and resources are listed on the first few pages of each session plan, with links to the module files. The male condom module is divided into three sessions:

  • Session I is on the characteristics of the male condom and includes key points for providers and clients, effectiveness, mechanism of action, health benefits, and other characteristics (e.g., ease of use, advantages and limitations).
  • Session II contains information on who can and who cannot use male condoms, how to use male condoms, practices to avoid, managing problems, and problems that may require switching.
  • Session III is on providing male condoms. It includes key counseling topics for male condom users, correcting rumors and misunderstandings, counseling tools and techniques, and follow-up visits.
