Quality of Family Planning Services in Malawi: What can we learn from Facility Audits?
Data were collected about the equipment, staffing and functioning of 30 health facilities (half government and half non-government) by observation and questionning of the officer in charge of family planning. The following findings are discussed: facilities and opening times, commodities inventory, other services provided, working conditions, and information, communication and protocols. The facility audit showed the capacity of both government and non-government facilities to provide quality services, and there was evidence of enhancement of quality through use of client and staff feedback.
