Beyond the Clinic Walls: Case Studies in Community-Based Distribution

Excerpt

This book contains a series of case studies which depict the management issues a family planning organization faces in designing and implementing a new community-based distribution (CBD) program for contraceptives. The cases, which take place in the fictional country Momonboro, are based on an actual program initiated in an African country, and reflect the problems and successes which that program experienced. The authors chose to record the experiences of an African CBD program, first, because there is growing interest for community-based distribution of family planning services in many African countries, and second, because the authors wished to explore the particular characteristics and challenges of designing and implementing a CBD program in that region.The cases in Beyond the Clinic Walls were developed for managers who are either contemplating or engaged in the process of designing and implementing a CBD program. For these managers the book can serve as:

• a guide to program development, exploring in some detail crucial issues in the design and implementation of CBD program management;

• a training resource, providing case studies and analyses of the case studies for use in workshops and small group discussions on CBD program management.
