Rapid innovative approach to measure of core family planning indicators

In many developing countries, fertility rates remain high due to lack of access to reproductive health and family planning (FP) services. FP use remains a central intervention in addressing maternal/child morbidity and mortality. Timely monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of FP indicators is therefore critical in addressing maternal and child mortality. Performance Monitoring and Accountability PMA2020 introduces an innovative approach for program M&E. Using this approach a study was conducted to estimate demand/use, supply and access of modern contraception in Kenya.
