Mobile Outreach Services: Expanding access to a full range of modern contraceptives

This eight-page brief describes the role of mobile outreach programs as a means of reducing inequities in access to family planning services (particularly LARCs and PMs), discusses the potential contribution of these programs, and outlines key issues for planning and implementation.
