Working closely with identified public sector sites, FRHS India’s PSS model has the following objectives:
- Improve quality of family planning services and client satisfaction
- Build capacity of public sector staff to address the issues that impact client safety and satisfaction, like infection prevention practices, medical emergency management, counselling and informed choice
- Ensure that the government fixed day events are run efficiently and in line with the nine step approach
- Build evidence and document the improvement in quality
- Conduct a baseline assessment of staff, infrastructure and service provision to understand status and identify areas of improvement
- Discuss assessment findings with the public sector staff to identify gaps and evolve action plans to address the same
- Build capacities of the public sector staff through knowledge and skills training, supportive supervision and periodic quality assessments to track progress. Trainings cover aspects of infection prevention, medical emergency management, counselling, stock management, management of fixed day services and client-centeredness.
- Support the facility staff on counselling, documentation, record-keeping and streamlining and making arrangements at the facility to better manage the client flow and service delivery
- Share learnings across sites
