Abstract

"The national family planning and maternal child health (FP-MCH) program in Bangladesh has succeeded in raising family planning acceptance among the couples of reproductive age significantly. A major challenge still facing the program however, is to strengthen its reproductive health component. In view of this, Population Council launched a pilot project to examine the feasibility of strengthening comprehensive reproductive tract infection (RTI) and sexually transmitted disease (STD) services at the Health and Family Welfare Center (H&FWC) level. The inputs from the Council included arrangement of training, provision of technical assistance in management, and other relevant supporting services required to strengthen the RTI/STD services."
