Manual for Building Capacity of Trainers and
Program Managers in Emergency Contraception
This manual, designed for trainers and clinical professionals, offers guidance on how to provide emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) in a South and Southeast Asian setting. The manual presents a one-day curriculum on ECPs. The training is organized into four sessions, each with specific learning objectives. Following the training, trainers or clinicians will have:
- An overview of the demographic and reproductive health situation in South and Southeast Asia, including the potential role of ECPs;
- Details about ECPs and their use;
- Service-delivery guidelines, including what users should do in case of method failure; and
- Guidance about counseling on ECP use, including the most commonly asked questions on ECPs.
The manual has been tested and used to train trainers and clinicians in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. It includes the slides and other tools used for training; these can be adapted for any setting. (PDF)
