In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Agency for International Development, and the United Nations Population Fund spearheaded the development of the Training Resource Package for Family Planning (TRP). The TRP was developed using evidence-based technical information from several WHO publications.
E2A has developed an adapted TRP for Pre-Service Education in Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health (AYSRH), which contains curriculum components and tools to design, implement, and evaluate training. It offers essential resources for family planning and reproductive health instructors, Ministries of Health and Education, and Directors of Schools of Nursing and Midwifery.
The purpose of this TRP for pre-service education is to harmonize and strengthen AYSRH training topics for pre-service nursing and midwifery education through the application of evidence-based AYSRH tools and in line with the country’s pre-service and family planning policies and guidelines. It is designed to actively involve students in the learning process through use of competency-based training methods. The following figure depicts the components of the TRP for Pre-Service Education in AYSRH.
The Session Plan for the AYSRH module can be accessed here. This session plan provides a detailed overview of the AYSRH training module to help ease facilitation and optimize time management to accomplish the set objectives. This complete session includes:

The AYSRH training module contains curriculum components and tools needed to design, implement, and evaluate training. It offers essential resources for FP/RH instructors, ministries of health and education, and directors of nursing and midwifery schools. The module was designed to harmonize and strengthen AYSRH training topics for pre-service nursing and midwifery education, and are meant to be aligned with each country’s PSE and FP policies and guidelines. The module seeks to encourage active involvement of students in the learning process.
The AYSRH Training Module follows the design of the original TRP modules and contain high-quality, user-friendly materials and resources for designing, conducting, and evaluating training for student nurses and midwives. The module includes PowerPoint presentations, simulation skills practice in the form of role plays, discussions, case studies and practice, and clinical practice using objective competency-based skills checklists. The module is designed for students in developing countries who most often will be tasked with providing full range of FP and AYSRH services and assumes students have a minimum level of clinical training.
