The Power of Mentorship & Supportive Supervision in Bangladesh: Strengthening the Capacity of Bangladesh’s Family Planning Workforce
The USAID Accelerating Universal Access to Family Planning Project, popularly known as Shukhi Jibon, supports the government of Bangladesh to deploy skilled, responsive, and respectful providers who deliver high quality family planning and sexual and reproductive health services.
Shukhi Jibon is the first project in Bangladesh to support public-sector family planning service providers by integrating mentorship into the government’s existing service delivery supervision system.
This publication highlights a selection of key activities—and dedicated individuals—at the heart of Shukhi Jibon’s Mentorship and Supportive Supervision (M&SS) efforts. With continued investment from valued partners, this innovative approach can contribute to dramatic improvements in the capacity of public sector health providers and the quality of family planning services across Bangladesh.
