In Bangladesh, family planning remains one of the top priorities in the 4th Health Sector Programme 2017-2021, as a path toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Bangladesh has prioritized implementing the national action plan for postpartum family planning, reducing social and geographical disparity through providing regional family planning packages in Sylhet and Chittagong divisions, and addressing unmet need among adolescents and youth by operationalizing the national adolescent health strategy. Bangladesh reiterates its commitment to end child marriage. For these, the Government of Bangladesh will mobilize USD$615 million for the family planning programme over 2017-2021, which is a 67% increase from the previous program. Bangladesh has strengthened its efforts to increase trained service providers, including: deploying midwives to all sub-district hospitals; improving supervision of family planning services by placing clinical teams in all districts; and engaging the private sector for addressing gaps in service provision and supply of commodities.
