Systems for Health supports the GHS to increase access to FP by building provider capacity to offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) at lower-level facilities, including CHPS clinics. Furthermore, the project addresses systemic service delivery challenges that affect access to and utilization of services through QI approaches and shared learning. The project creates user demand through community meetings and health promotion activities.

Systems for Health continues to support the 1,000+ midwives and nurses in 105 districts trained in Years 1–3 in FP counseling and LARC through on-site coaching visits targeted to areas where the data show the greatest needs. Shared learning began in 2017 in six sub-districts in the Western Region and expanded in 2018 to 24 districts in four regions.
