Extending Service Delivery – Family Planning Initiative (ESD-FPI): Baseline Report

Extending Service Delivery - Family Planning Initiative Project (ESD-FPI) is a four-year project funded by USAID to increase the use of family planning and HIV services in four provinces in Mozambique. Recognizing that there is high unmet need for both family planning and HIV services, ESD-FPI works with facilities, communities, and partners to address unmet need and integrate family planning services at all levels. The objectives of the baseline survey were to assess the level of knowledge and practice of family planning, examine the use of facility-based services, identify communication channels through which information about family planning could be disseminated, and inform decision-making regarding project strategies and appropriate targets. The results of the study suggest that while the use of maternal health services is high among the study population, utilization varies by the characteristic of the respondents and by province.
