Creating Successful Vasectomy Programming

Vasectomy is a safe and highly effective family planning method for men and couples who do not want any more children, but in low resource settings, few men seek out or have access to this method. Increasing the voluntary use of vasectomy is a cost-effective strategy for countries to reduce unmet need for family planning, decrease unintended pregnancies, and meet national family planning goals. By engaging men directly in family planning, vasectomy also holds promise for promoting positive gender norms and healthy relationships.

A new set of resources from FHI 360/Evidence Project provides policymakers, advocates, program managers, and service providers with evidence-based recommendations for improving vasectomy programming.

Additionally, a blog post written by Trinity Zan, Technical Advisor at FHI 360, has been posted to K4Health. Read the full article here.
