Request for literature on implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing in family planning
The Contraception and Fertility Care Unit of the UNDP–UNFPA–UNICEF–WHO–World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP), Department of Sexual Reproductive Health and Research, at the World Health Organization has commissioned a review on the implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing in family planning.
Ensuring access to quality family planning (FP) services is fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) targets 3.1, 3.7, and 5.6, including universal access to reproductive health services. However, barriers such as health workforce shortages and restrictive policies on the role of mid and lower-level health workforce cadres limit access to contraceptives and FP in many settings. Evidence on the implementation strategies, facilitators, and barriers to scaling up and sustaining task-sharing could inform financing, implementation approaches, and technical assistance of national and global FP task-sharing programs.
