Repositioning Family Planning: Guidelines for Advocacy Action
‘Provision of family planning services in Africa is hindered by poverty, poor access to services and commodities, poor coordination of the programmes, and dwindling donor funding. In addition, traditional beliefs favoring high fertility, religious barriers, and lack of make involvement have weakened family planning interventions. Yet, it is considered an essential component of primary health care and reproductive health and plays a major role in reducing maternal and newborn morbidity, and transmission of HIV.’
