Pathfinder International Training Materials on USG Policy and Legislative Requirements for Family Planning

When Pathfinder and its partners implement family planning service delivery activities with US government (USG) foreign assistance funds we are obligated to respect the laws and policies applicable to the assistance. To this end, Pathfinder has developed a set of training materials that provide clear guidelines and procedures for compliance with USG legislative and policy requirements. These materials include information on requirements related to voluntarism, informed choice, sterilization, abortion, and how to ensure compliance and confront suspected violations.
