Injectable contraceptives have proven to be a relatively safe and effective modern Family Planning method for women. However, very few women in India use injectable contraceptives - approximately 0.2% in 2015-16. This research brief summarizes a study with 546 injectable contraceptive users and concludes that IUD use can only increase if ASHA workers are trained to provide adequate quality of care and information on side effects, along with careful monitoring of results. This longitudinal study also contains recommendations and can be a guide for on-ground implementers of Family Planning programs to improve the quality of care and training of health workers.
