The Family Planning 2030 (FP2030) organization held a webinar to present its Measurement Report for the year 2022. The report highlighted important trends and data related to family planning efforts worldwide. Here are the key takeaways from the webinar:
- Contraceptive Use: Modern contraceptive use has increased in all regions over the past decade, with one in three women of reproductive age in low- and lower-middle-income countries now using modern contraception.
- Method Mix: There have been significant changes in contraceptive method preferences, with a shift towards implants as one of the most common methods in many countries.
- Regional Profiles: The report analyzes family planning commitments in different regions, with good coverage in Asia-Pacific and Africa.
- Donor Funding: Bilateral family planning funding from donor governments remained flat in 2021 compared to the previous year, with variations among different donor countries.
- Domestic Expenditures: Many low- and lower-middle-income countries increased their domestic government expenditures on family planning, leading to significant growth in funding.
- Online Resources: FP2030 offers valuable online resources, including estimate tables, uncertainty estimates, country FP indicator summaries, and an adolescent and youth data app.
The report showcases positive trends in family planning efforts worldwide, with increased contraceptive use and improved domestic funding in various countries.
