Since 2010, the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) has been applying quality improvement (QI) approaches to integrate family planning (FP) counseling and services in maternal health programs and in HIV services. Specifically, HCI has applied the collaborative improvement approach in selected districts in Mali, Afghanistan, and Uganda to engage QI teams of service providers at maternal health services (Mali and Afghanistan) and at HIV services (Uganda) to analyze the existing processes of service delivery to identify barriers to FP integration and the potential points where FP counseling can be introduced. This short report describes the global leadership that HCI has provided to document and disseminate quality improvement approaches for FP integration.
