The purpose of this paper is to present country experience from recent Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), Population Services International (PSI), and Family Health International (FHI)-360 projects that have initiated PPIUCD services through integration of maternity services, and to encourage providers and health administrators to evaluate key programmatic considerations when initiating PPIUCD services. Programmatic experience presented here is based on work in El Salvador, Guinea, India, Kenya, Paraguay, Rwanda, and Zambia, where PPIUCD programming has been successfully introduced. Examples of advocacy, service strengthening, training, capacity building, community involvement, and monitoring and evaluation are provided throughout.
