This summarised resource on the Open Society Foundations/CI website Health, Rights, Media examines family planning (FP) literature and interventions to understand how social network ideas are used to overcome barriers to FP use. It describes how the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH)'s Terikunda Jekulu project in Mali can use this knowledge to approach FP in traditional communities. Particular attention is given to the individuals and groups who play key roles in decisions regarding fertility and FP. The approaches examined focus on demand creation as both a practical and socially transformative means to addressing unmet need.
