Choice-based Family Planning (FP) services, grounded in principles of informed and voluntary decision making, are essential in realizing the reproductive rights of individuals, and in ensuring their overall health and well-being. Therefore, it is critical to have an environment that is supportive in the provision of choice to clients. This environment includes policies and their implementation.
In India, the key policies and strategies that govern implementation of the FP program are reflective of the
commitment towards adopting a choice-based approach. However, there is limited understanding of how
FP policies are translated into action on the ground and what are the practices adopted that enable or hinder
provision of choice-based services. Therefore, Ipas Development Foundation (IDF) conducted a study to get
an understanding of FP program implementation in India. A total of five states were selected for the study –
Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Rajasthana.
