A compilation of various tools (guidelines, standard operating procedures, presentations, job aids and forms) to enhance community involvement in MNCH and PMTCT services among men, women and community leaders. This toolkit showcases how to bring to scale three distinct approaches: “community days”, peer group mentorship and community leadership engagement.
