October 2017: The WHO has released its revised Medical Eligibility Criteria and Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use in 2015-16. Links are below. The TRP module will be updated to reflect those changes by early 2018. Pease consult the revised WHO documents for changes in the interim.
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.
