Integrating family planning with immunization services in Zambia
Collaborating with Zambian women and health care workers to advance integrated, person-centered care
This brief describes PATH's collaboration with the Zambia Ministry of Health to develop person-centered service delivery models for integrating family planning services into childhood immunization programming. Through the project, PATH’s Living Labs team facilitated human-centered program design workshops with women, male partners, and leaders in primary health care, family planning, and immunization to develop innovative approaches to integrate family planning services during routine child immunization and reach postpartum women. During the five-month pilot phase across forty facilities in four districts, public sector health workers reached more than 2,400 women with the combined services of family planning and child immunization.
