Reproductive Health Manual for Trainers of Community Health Workers




Centre for Development and Population Activities




This manual was developed to help organizations who provide reproductive health services through the community-based distribution approach to train their community health workers in reproductive health. The manual is based on the premise that RH is a fundamental human right and that every individual has the basic right to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing, and timing of their children and to have the information and the means to do so, the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health, and the right to make decisions free of discrimination, coercion or violence. The manuals stress informed choice, quality of care, and increased sensitivity to women’s needs, focusing on family planning (FP) as an integral part of RH. [adapted from introduction]
