Guide for Application of the Method Information Index

May 2020

The quality of family planning counseling is important to support women to use, and continue using, contraception, when desired. Providing women with a choice of contraceptive methods and with high-quality counseling are critical elements of rights-based family planning.  Therefore, providers, managers and donors of family planning services need to understand if a client is receiving appropriate and complete counseling during her visit.

Metrics for Management has demonstrated that the 3-question Method Information Index is a good measure to assess the quality of counseling a woman receives.
