PRIME II Technical Reports
Most PRIME II Technical Reports detail specific reproductive health care interventions, describing the context, methodology and results of a PRIME project and recommendations from its evaluation. Other reports focus on findings from needs assessments conducted prior to a training intervention or document follow-up studies that ascertain how well health care providers have retained the knowledge and skills they acquired during training. Research studies testing new approaches to service delivery were sometimes published as PRIME technical reports, often with implications for health care policies in particular countries.
