  • Objectives: To examine how pre-service education institutions in sub-Saharan Africa are providing family planning training. Methods: Literature search of pre-service education family planning training and key informant interviews with experts in the field of family planning pre-service education in sub-Saharan Africa. Results: There is a paucity of information available in current literature highlighting specific aspects of pre-service family planning training; however, valuable data were collected via the key informant interviews. Pre-service education institutions in sub-Saharan Africa are training students to provide family planning counseling and service provision, but the extent and quality of the training vary between and within countries. Conclusion: Pre-service training institutions should strengthen family planning training so health workers are better equipped to provide essential family planning services.
