I assisted with the initial steps of “Increasing Access to Vasectomies in Guatemala.” This study targeted men, women and providers and staff at the four study sites and 22 referring clinics. During my internship, I created media materials and a pamphlet to hand out to patients and hang in the study sites and referring clinics. The signs and flyers include bullet points of information about vasectomy, where to obtain additional information and free cost of the procedure. We validated the media material at the four sites and 65 providers or patients. This information was summarized, and I edited the media material accordingly. I also created pre- and posttests for providers to complete immediately before and after the half day training sessions
