In this paper, the authors set forth three typical means of service provision within the Family Planning & Sexual Health sector since the mid-1900s: independent not-for-profit providers, vertical government programmes and social marketing programmes. In each case, they present the context within which the service delivery mechanism evolved, the management techniques that characterize it and the lessons learned in FP&SH that are applicable to the wider debate about improving health sector management.
