The overall objective of these cards is to:
• Increase awareness about family planning and postabortion care services to reduce illness and death related to complications
of bleeding in the first half of pregnancy; and
• Encourage community action to address these problems at the individual, household and community levels.
Community Health Information Cards can help Community Health Workers (CHWs) to:
• Share health information with the community;
• Lead discussions about important health issues with the community to explore why they happen, and what the community
can do about them;
• Encourage community members to plan, carry out, monitor, and evaluate action plans that try to solve health issues using
existing resources;
• Help refer community members to appropriate resources, such as health workers and health care facilities.
