Afghanistan has finalized its Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent (RMNCAH) strategy as well as the Costed Implementation Plan (2018-2022) for family planning. Afghanistan has made strides since making its first FP2020 commitment in 2016 by increasing the number of public health facilities offering family planning and expanding contraceptive choice through revitalizing the PPIUCD program and adding implants and DPMA SC to the Essential Medicines List. Further, the country is continuing to work toward promoting public/private partnerships and engaging with religious leaders, youth, and civil society. To reach their mCPR goal of 30% as well as reduce unmet need by 10% by 2020, Afghanistan aims to continue strengthening supply chain management, addressing cultural barriers to family planning, and bolstering intersectoral coordination and advocacy aimed at decision-makers. The country hosts multiple family planning committees including for intersectoral; private sector; contraceptive security; and reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health coordination, demonstrating strong political will and leadership in the family planning sphere.

Core Indicator Estimates

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions. For a complete analysis of Afghanistan and these Core Indicators, click below.
