The HTSP Implementation Kit


Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancies:

Addressing Advanced Maternal Age and

High Parity in Family Planning Programs

Implementation Kit 

The HTSP I-Kit is designed to help program managers address the risks of pregnancies among women aged 35 and older (of advanced maternal age, or AMA) and women having five or more births (high-parity, or HP) in their family planning or maternal and child health programs.

You can use the HTSP Implementation Kit online here, or you can download it to print or to use on your computer. 

The I-Kit is divided into two parts:

  • Sections to help review the local data, apply SBCC approaches to design a strategy, integrate AMA and HP into FP and MCH programs, develop an action plan, adapt SBCC communication materials, and prepare a monitoring and evaluation plan. 
  • Adaptable SBCC communication materials, including: counseling guides for providers/CHWs; a provider poster; client brochures; guides for working with community-based groups, researchers and journalists; and infographics.
