A commitment maker since 2013 and a member of the Ouagadougou Partnership, Benin has made steady progress towards its commitment to increase mCPR to 22%. One factor in this progress is the expansion of the range of method choice available, with the introduction of DMPA-SC in 10 health zones, with plans for national scale-up soon. Another factor is the country's commitment to providing free family planning services within health centers to the population by the end of 2019. Benin is currently on track to honor this commitment. Adolescents and young people are already accessing family planning services for free, and an executive order is currently awaiting signature to allow for free access for all. Challenges certainly remain, with financing for commodities from the national level down to the community and ensuring last mile distribution of commodities.

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.
