    Hormonal implants are a highly effective, very safe, and reversible form of progestin-only contraception that is quickly and easily provided by a trained provider in a few minutes via a minor surgical procedure. Nearly all women can use this long-acting method, at any stage in their reproductive life. This Technical Brief provides an overview of the characteristics of this method, as well as programmatic considerations for service delivery, including client eligibility, provider cadres' ability to provide implants, service quality, and access, to name a few.
