IPPF MEDICAL & SERVICE DELIVERY GUIDELINES
The guidelines offer up-to-date evidence-based guidance on a range of SRH issues, including family planning. The English version can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
These Guidelines are intended to improve the knowledge, skills, and confidence of service providers in the delivery of high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.
Based on a client-rights approach, the Guidelines offer up-to-date evidence-based guidance on a range of sexual and reproductive issues, including family planning.
In the seven years since the last edition, the Guidelines have been extensively updated and made consistent with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) 2004 Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use and Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use.
Like previous editions, the Guidelines were written with the support and technical expertise of IPPF’s International Medical Advisory Panel (IMAP).
The intended users of the Guidelines are:
•Programme planners and managers
•Clinical services providers
•Supervisors of clinical and community-based services
•Doctors, nurses, midwives, and other health professionals
The recommendations are also relevant to community-based services and can be used for developing materials for these workers/volunteers - best done at the local level.
