Note: This module is under revision to incorporate changes to the WHO Medical Eligibility for Contraceptive Use and Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use. We will post an announcement here when the updated module is available. Please consult the revised WHO documents for changes in the interim (see links below).
This module on Combined Oral Contraceptives (COCs) is designed for the providers in developing countries who most often are tasked with providing FP services—primarily nurses and nurse-midwives, as well as primary care physicians—and assume trainees will have at minimum a nurse’s level of clinical training. Although the module can be used for Community Health Workers (CHWs), they would need basic literacy skills.
