This report documents a service evaluation of Population Services Zimbabwe’s (PSZ) mobile outreach program in four provinces of Zimbabwe. The evaluation was conducted by the Population Council between September and October 2013. It provides key findings on the quality of the PSZ outreach program in expanding choice and access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) and permanent methods (PMs) of contraception, as well as recommendations for PSZ and other family planning programs to consider in scaling up and strengthening mobile outreach services. The evaluation, conducted by the Population Council, was designed to focus on various components of quality including adequate information and counseling on methods and services, good clinical procedure with minimal occurrence of adverse events, and client health-seeking behavior and client satisfaction. The level of integration of HIV and other SRH-related services into the family planning program was also evaluated.
