Hesperian’s Family Planning app is designed to support frontline health workers, community leaders, and health advocates to share unbiased information on birth control options. The app can help you counsel women on reproductive health, a range of birth control methods, the benefits and disadvantages of each method, and more. A built-in “method choosing” tool can help determine which methods best account for individual preferences, circumstances and health history.

The FAQ section answers general questions about contraception and addresses common concerns specific to certain birth control methods.

The app features an Interactive Counseling Adventure to help improve counseling skills by considering the varying needs of women.

An easy to use, accessible tool for healthcare workers, community leaders, and other health advocates, it can also be used by individuals seeking information for personal use.

After downloading, the app operates offline without a data plan. It’s available for both Apple and Android, in English, Spanish, French, and Swahili.
