Since the early 2000s, the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University (IRH) has introduced and tested the Standard Days Method® (SDM) in a variety of service delivery settings around the world. Under the Fertility Awareness Methods (FAM) Project, IRH and partners scaled up SDM services in family planning programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guatemala, India, Mali, and Rwanda.

These country briefs summarize events including strategic choices, approaches, enabling/limiting factors, and results of systematic SDM scale-up and related research. They conclude with an analysis of the sustainability of scale-up success in each country.
