Improving Women’s Reproductive Health: The Medical Components of a Primary Level Framework of Services: The Experience of the Reproductive Health Intervention Study, Policy Series in Reproductive Health, No. 7, the Population Council, 2002.

This paper describes the medical components of a framework of primary level services implemented by the Reproductive Health Intervention Study. The study involved the design and testing of a model of essential reproductive health services. It identified a framework of basic service components that address reproductive health, and showed that their delivery is possible at the primary level. The aim of the paper is to present the medical components of the framework, with a rationale explaining the selection process for the various components. The paper outlines the framework which was developed and tested by the study team in three rural primary care clinics in Giza, Egypt and which is a concrete example of "implementing Cairo" on the ground. The paper presents the main achievements as well as challenges and discusses the most salient policy implications.
