This infographic describes interventions conducted in Port Said, Egypt, aimed at increasing demand for private family planning health (FP/RH) services among young men and women (aged 18-35 years). The intervention was aimed at young garment factory workers, where selected factory workers were trained to serve as peer educators and to provide FP/RH messages to their co-workers, referring them to the infirmary nurse for more information and counseling, as needed. This nurse referred those who desired more services or FP methods to trained physicians and pharmacists. The infographic provides an overview of the interventions, perspectives from study participants, and lessons learned for integrating FP/RH into workers' health education programs.
