ICA Foundation’s partners, donation recipients and project implementers may find helpful resources below including:
- A PowerPoint presentation about the ICA Foundation
- A brochure about the Foundation for local partners
- Materials for project training
- Information, education and communication (IEC) materials
- Project documentation and reporting forms for project administration
This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief overview of the Foundations mission, its operations and country projects, as well as details about the contraceptive product, the LNG IUS.
This brochure provides a brief overview of ICA Foundation’s purpose, mission, and procedures. Information about the LNG IUS as well as logistics related to requesting and receiving a donation for the ICA Foundation is also outlined.
Along with LNG IUS donation, organizations receiving donation will also receive tools to facilitate provider training. These include LNG IUS demos, small plastic uterus models, and a CD-ROM training manual.
This presentation can be used to train providers who will be inserting LNG IUS and familiarize them with the characteristics of the LNG IUS, its mechanism of action, as well as details of its indication and usage. Commonly asked questions from women and appropriate responses are also reviewed in the presentation. The compilation of this LNG IUS training PowerPoint presentation was a collaborative effort from ICA Foundation Board Members and skilled physicians and was made in response to partners’ requests for additional training resources.
The Foundation encourages all donation recipients to use these materials as much as possible. Please contact the Foundation if you would like more training products, additional copies of training materials, or have any questions.
