The set of cue cards is designed to help a range of community- and facility-based providers to counsel adolescents and young people on their contraceptive options. The cue cards address: combined oral contraceptives, progestin-only pills, emergency contraception, male and female condoms, injectables, implants, intrauterine devices, and the lactational amenorrhea method. The provider can use the front side of the cards to give information about all available options and, after the adolescent chooses a method, they turn to the back side to give specific instruction on use.
The cue cards were updated in 2016 to reflect changes in the WHO’s Medical Eligibility Criteria.
Updates to the Portuguese language version is forthcoming.
