The goal of post-pregnancy family planning is to help women avoid unintended pregnancies during the postpartum and post-abortion period and beyond, allowing them to adequately space their pregnancies for optimal maternal and child health outcomes. It recognizes the unique opportunity to reach women while they are engaged with healthcare services following childbirth and provides them with the information, resources, and support they need to make choices that align with their individual circumstances and reproductive intentions.
On average, almost all pregnant women (98%) receive at least one contact of antenatal care by a skilled provider and almost 9 out of 10 them (89%) give birth under the care of a skilled provider. Furthermore, the majority of ANC and childbirth services are provided at the primary health care level. Kenya faces significant challenges in maternal and child health, including high maternal mortality rates and a high total fertility rate. These factors create an excellent milieu for integrating post-pregnancy (post-partum and post-abortion) family planning into primary health care. While universal availability of voluntary and quality PPFP counselling and services has the potential to minimize the unmet need, improve the mCPR and transform the lives of women and their families, this proven high impact practice is unfortunately yet to be institutionalized and fully implemented in Kenya, making the postpartum and post-abortion periods continue to be missed opportunities for FP in the life-course of many individuals
There is a need to address the gap in post-pregnancy and post abortion family planning services in Kenya to ensure that women have access to and can make informed choices about contraception after childbirth. Jhpiego- through its project- Accelerating Post Pregnancy Family Planning Integration into Primary healthcare services in Kenya (APIP), is working in collaboration with MOH, COG and NCPD, to support counties to address these challenges across the WHO health systems strengthening building blocks.
The Ministry of Health is seeking an experienced and highly skilled consultant to support develop a comprehensive national implementation plan for the scale-up of post pregnancy family planning in Kenya. The primary objective of this consultancy is to provide strategic guidance and technical expertise to the Ministry of Health in order to improve access and utilization of family planning services among women during the postpartum period.
We are seeking the services of a qualified consultancy firm or individuals to develop a Post-pregnancy family planning scale up implementation plan for Kenya. The development of the post-pregnancy family planning scale-up implementation plan will be led by the Ministry of Health – Division of Reproductive maternal health and include collaboration with National Council for Population and Development (NCPD). Other key collaborations will include development partners, non-governmental organizations, and RH/FP donors. The implementation plan will be designed for use by various stakeholders including civil society organizations, government agencies, and other actors in the field of sexual and reproductive health.
The PPFP scale up implementation plan will be developed through a consultative and participatory process with key stakeholders in Kenya, including government agencies, development partners, civil society organizations, and private sector actors.
