Adequate infection prevention practices during female sterilization have been an area of concern. However, there is insufficient monitoring and data to measure adherence in public health facilities. This study assesses facility readiness for infection prevention and adherence to infection prevention practices during female sterilization procedures in rural northern India. The data for this study was collected in 2016–2017 as part of a family planning quality of care survey in selected public health facilities. It highlights gaps in the preparedness of medical staff and facilities to prevent infections and ensuing health concerns. This paper will help program implementers and healthcare facility administrators to address gaps and improve infrastructure to support effective service provision.
