The Indian state of Jharkhand has shown commitment to improve the implementation of its family planning (FP) program and undertook a capacity-building program, with technical assistance from the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), to strengthen capacities of the state Family Planning Cell, civil society organizations, and district- and block-level health functionaries to operationalize the state's FP strategy and oversee its effective implementation. This program was piloted in three focus districts—Simdega, West Singhbhum, and Giridih—and followed an intensive approach that included a capacity needs assessment and development of a program that was in line with the findings of the needs assessment.

This toolkit was developed as an aid for HPP’s capacity-building program in the Jharkhand. It consists of the Manager's Tool to record data during mentoring and supervisory visits; the Manual for District and Block Managers and accompanying PowerPoint slides that provide training and guidance to build capacity for a stronger health system that supports family planning programs; and the Training of Trainers Manual and accompanying PowerPoint presentations to build participants' skills to become trainers of district- and block-level managers in health systems strengthening and effective management to improve FP programming.
