According to the United Nations Population Fund, access to safe, voluntary family planning and RH is a human right. Family planning is central to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and it is a key factor in reducing poverty.
Scaling up FP/RH is one of the most cost-effective interventions to prevent maternal, infant, and child deaths globally. Furthermore, FP/RH interventions aid in lowering mortality, contributing to the SGDs. Through a reduction in the number of unintended pregnancies, it is estimated that one-quarter to one-third of all maternal deaths could be prevented. Family planning is linked indirectly as a contributor to positive health outcomes. Example, FP interventions contribute to reducing poverty, increasing gender equity, preventing the spread of HIV, reducing unwanted pregnancies and lowering infant deaths. Additionally, each dollar spent on FP initiative on average results in $6 saving on health, housing, water, and other public services.
The aforementioned benefits of FP/RH goes without admitting that “quality data” is key to making accurate decisions on FP/RH. Lack of quality routine data on is therefore a major hindrance to realizing the full benefits of FP.
