The FALAH project, launched in 2007, funded by USAID and implemented by a consortium of partners led by The Population Council, sought to shift family planning (FP) perception. This report details the findings of an assessment of FALAH’s FP and birth spacing impact. The study assessed public health facility readiness for offering FP and birth spacing services by interviewing in-charges and providers, as well as assessing the types of services provided and service providers’ characteristics. The study also examined the facilities’ quality of care through observing client and provider interactions, while client satisfaction was assessed in exit interviews. FALAH’s objective was to prepare public health facilities for better quality birth spacing/FP services, and thereby increase contraceptive prevalence. From evidence gathered in this assessment, it can be confidently stated that facilities and staff trained under FALAH are delivering better services.
