Promoting family planning

Client: “It reassured me that the method I am using is safe.”
Provider: “The flipchart brought a positive change…now my clients are making the decision instead of me.”

This is a multipurpose decision-making aid for clients: a decision-making aid for clients, a job-aid and reference manual for providers; a training resource. Its format allows easy interaction with clients – one page faces the client (with simple information on key issues for the client to consider) and a corresponding page faces the provider (with key points and detailed reference information). Health-care providers can use it step-by-step to help clients make informed choices that suit their needs.
