Health educators in rural Madagascar display contraceptives they distribute to people living in villages far from health centers.
The majority of target villages in Madagascar are located very far from health centres (more than 15 km). Climate and lack of infrastructure constitute obstacles to health centre attendance. Health educators are trained to ensure the distribution of contraceptives to people living in villages which are more than 05 km away from a health centre. Women have been trained in awareness raising and counselling to promote family planning and the reproductive health of adolescents. Health workers also sell contraceptives, including the pill, spermicide and condoms.
