Training of Trainer (TOT) programmes – Supported by UNFPA Sri Lanka and People of Japan.
Sri Lanka holds a leading position amongst low and middle-income countries with regard to its impressive maternal health indicators. These impressive statistics are often attributed to the country’s well-organized and decentralised healthcare system.
Despite observing impressive maternal health indicators, unsafe abortions remain prevalent, unaddressed, and accountable, to a considerable extent, for the maternal deaths that do occur in the country. In spite of its wide reach, the unmet need for family planning in Sri Lanka indicates that there are certain vulnerable populations (youth, working men and women including older women and single women) that remain unreached, without adequate access to information and modern contraceptive services.
Multiple Training of Trainer Programmes were carried out in March 2021 in the districts of Trincomalee and Vavuniya.
The sessions covered Modern Contraceptives, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Planning a family, Unintended pregnancies, Sub Fertility and Counselling.
