As a first point of contact for family planning, Indian ASHA workers must ensure that women receive accurate information and care that is sensitive to and respectful of individual needs. Nadia Diamond-Smith and colleagues evaluated the extent to which training ASHA workers in “person-centered care” has impacts on family planning outcomes. Although ASHAs reported increased appreciation for person-centered care, the training had no impact on improving family planning services.
