Family Planning Through Dairy Cooperatives
Providing Family Planning Services Sustainably Through Dairy Cooperatives in Kenya

This observational study will assess a model for providing family planning through quarterly events organized by dairy cooperatives supported by Land O'Lakes in Kenya.

Access to family planning and other reproductive health services remains difficult in much of rural Kenya. One option for improving rural access to family planning is to use existing community events outside of the health sector as platforms for delivering information and services. This study will assess a model for providing family planning through quarterly events organized by dairy cooperatives supported by Land O'Lakes in Kenya. During these events, known as Field Days, a healthcare provider will have a tent in which Field Day attendees can receive basic family health services free of charge. The services offered will be: family planning counseling and methods, immunizations, antenatal care, screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and HIV counseling and testing. Since the services are no different than those that could be obtained at Ministry of Health or some private facilities, the service provision is not considered to be part of the research.

Women receiving any service from the health care provider will be recruited for an interview that will measure their demand for family planning and attitudes about receiving services during the field day. In addition, the study will track the number of different types of services provided, the total number of Field Day attendees, and the cost of the service model. The study will be carried out at five Field Days in Rift Valley and Central provinces.

Participants will not be tested for STI/HIV as part of this research; however, at their request, they may have received a test from the provider prior to the research interview. At the time of consent, they will have already received the test, so the consent form will not include anything specific to testing. In Kenya, all STI/HIV test results are reported to the national public health authorities. These reports are not used for contacting patients but for planning purposes.
