Family Planning - Permanent Methods

Permanent methods of family planning are helpful in limiting the family size. This video explains that there are two types of permanent family planning: female sterilization and male sterilization. Both are long-term, safe and effective. The video further illustrates that the procedure for female sterilization takes around 30 minutes while male sterilization does not require any incision or stitches and can be completed in 10 to 20 minutes. For both methods, the person is able to go home on the same day after the sterilization procedure. The video is useful as a BCC tool for health education during mothers' group meetings (MGs) and Village Health and Nutrition Days (VHNDs) at the village level by ASHAs (Accredited Social Health Activist), a village-level frontline health worker.
