Balanced Counseling Strategy Plus (ECB +)

This Third Edition of the BCS+ includes content updated according to the latest WHO Medical Eligibility Criteria (2015). It incorporates the most up-to-date evidence on clinical indications for the provision of family planning methods, including new methods (Caya®/SILCS diaphragm and Progesterone Vaginal Ring), and includes six new counseling cards that address Adolescent Counseling, Male Services, Post Abortion Care, and Women’s Support and Safety, Breast Cancer Information and Awareness, and Zika Prevention and Treatment. The updated cards include instructions for providers, guiding them through supplemental counseling and services that family planning clients may need.
