Expanding access to contraceptive services and improving health outcomes require services to be delivered in ways that respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of everyone who seeks, or uses contraceptive information and services.

This guide brings together the framework and recommendations from WHO’s guidelines Ensuring Human Rights in the Provision of Contraceptive Information and Services, and of Choices not Chance: UNFPA’s Family Planning Strategy 2012–2020.

This implementation guide sets out core minimum actions that can be taken at different levels of the health system, and provides examples of implementation of the recommendations in the WHO guidelines. This guide is addressed to mid-level policymakers and programme managers and implementers involved with family planning service provision in all settings.
