Couple's family planning (FP) counseling programs have had particularly promising results, improving partners’ overall communication and FP use. In Togo’s Kloto District, the Maternal and Child Survival Project (MCSP) has designed several male engagement and couple's counseling programs with potential for expansion, but the models must be evaluated before a common counseling framework is implemented in the West Africa region. Breakthrough RESEARCH is evaluating two types of couple's counseling—group- and home-based—implemented in separate townships (cantons) in Togo’s Kloto district.
