- Support the government to achieve its FP2020 commitment—at least 60% of married women ages 15-49 using contraception by 2020
- Organize and host state-level workshops on contraception, engaging policymakers and townships to identify barriers they face in providing quality contraceptive services and collaborate on solutions
- Work closely with international organizations and local partners to make sure essential drugs and supplies, including contraceptives, are always available
- Focus on the unique sexual and reproductive health needs of Myanmar’s 16 million young people
- Train health providers to deliver higher quality contraceptive services and offer a full range of methods, so people can choose the option that’s best for them
Universal Access to Family Planning
In Myanmar, 1 in 4 women of reproductive age can’t access the modern contraceptives she needs to delay or avoid pregnancy. We have been advocating with the government and providing technical inputs at every level—national, state, and township—for stronger health systems and quality contraceptive services for everyone who wants them, especially focusing o the unmet needs of young people.
