Abstract

In October 2007, the Frontiers in Reproductive Health (FRONTIERS) program held a three-day regional workshop in La Antigua, Guatemala, to disseminate results of its operations research projects. During the workshop, participants received contraceptive technology updates, and learned about effective strategies tested by FRONTIERS to increase access to the IUD and vasectomy; and about integration of family planning with postpartum, postabortion, and PMTCT. Researchers discussed study results, program managers explained how they were used, and practitioners talked about implementing the interventions—a combination of perspectives that successfully transmitted the message that the interventions were not difficult to apply, could have a great impact, and, as one participant wrote on the evaluation form, that “small changes could lead to great results.” Participants prepared plans, outlined in this report, to put into practice lessons learned at the workshop.
