Strengthening evidence-based Family Planning services in pre-service medical education  MedEd

Traditionally, most efforts to strengthen the health care practices in the public health system in India have focused on in-service training. However, medical colleges are role models for large numbers of medical and nursing students, their practices determine the actual practices in primary care system. At the same time, the practices at medical colleges are not always evidence based and are often outdated. Med Ed aims to improve the quality of teaching provided to medical students so that it builds greater skills for family planning and respectful maternity care and sensitivity towards reproductive rights in Maharashtra and Rajasthan.
