This manual aims to equip Master Trainers with appropriate knowledge on emergency contraceptive pills that can be used by a woman to prevent an unwanted pregnancy within three days of unprotected intercourse or a contraceptive accident such as condom leakage. The manual discusses emergency contraceptive pills and the provision of related services. After a day’s training, Master Trainers will have the knowledge and skills necessary to train service providers and workers on emergency contraceptive pills. Clinicians and program managers who would like to provide services or information on emergency contraceptive pills would also benefit from the manual. The manual is divided into four sessions. The first session provides an overview of the demographic and reproductive health situation in South Asia and discusses the role of emergency contraception as a reproductive health intervention. The second session defines emergency contraception and discusses details of when and how emergency contraceptive pills should be taken. Service delivery guidelines are covered in the third session. The fourth session covers counseling on emergency contraceptive pills and frequently asked questions.
