The Government of Zimbabwe, through the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC) and Zimbabwe National Family Planning Council (ZNFPC) has been committed to the delivery of an efficient and effective family planning programme to its citizens since independence. The commitment has been supported by national manuals, policies and strategic documents as well as regional and international protocols and commitments that the government has ratified and made over the years. 

As part of efforts to keep in trend with developments in contraceptive technology and practice, provide modern quality and effective contraceptives and efficiently deliver world class family planning services, it has become prudent for the nation to provide family planning and reproductive health practitioners with updated FP guidelines, based on recent WHO and other global guidance. Health workers are therefore encouraged to use these FP Guidelines alongside other manuals produced by ZNFPC and MOHCC as good practice in family planning and reproductive health services provision.
