Voluntary Participation Sample Policy Template

Job Aid
Voluntary, Client-Centered, Non-Coercive Services

This sample policy can be modified to describe the process for ensuring grantee and subrecipient compliance with the requirement that family planning services are to be provided solely on a voluntary basis, that a client’s acceptance of services must not be a prerequisite to eligibility for any other services, and that personnel will be subject to prosecution if they coerce or try to coerce any person to undergo an abortion or sterilization procedure.
