Community Based Service Delivery (CBD)
The Population Council's Africa Operations Research (OR) and Techni-
cal Assistance Project has conducted numerous studies on CBD in sub-
Saharan Africa. In general, findings from OR studies suggest that
community-based service delivery can contribute to contraceptive use.
The OR studies also provide programmatic recommendations for increas-
ing the role of CBD agents in the community, strengthening record-
keeping and reporting, and supervision, as well as recommendations
for improving cost-effectiveness and quality of care.
We have two comprehensive reports that we can share with interested
