Scaling Up Emergency Contraceptive Pills to the National Level in Bangladesh
Council researchers with the FRONTIERS program worked the Ministry of Health in Bangladesh to introduce emergency contraceptive pills into the National Family Planning Program.
In collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), FRONTIERS provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in Bangladesh to introduce emergency contraceptive pills (ECP) into the National Family Planning Program. This project (formally titled "Enhancing Utilization of Research Findings: Scaling Up Emergency Contraceptive Pills [ECP] Program to the National Level in Bangladesh") was a follow-up to the successful three-year pilot project that tested the introduction of ECP in Bangladesh. The majority of providers received training on ECP, and retention of ECP knowledge by service providers and field workers after two years remains high. Participating facilities have educational brochures and ECP supplies on hand.
