A commitment maker since 2012 and a member of both the Ouagadougou Partnership and SWEDD (Sahel Women’s Empowerment and Demographic Dividend project), Burkina Faso has taken its FP2020 commitment seriously through its 2017 - 2020 RH/FP strategy. The country is pushing domestic resource mobilization to unrivaled levels within the region (at the national as well as the municipal level). It is ambitiously working to ensure full adolescent/youth integration in all family planning activities, and the country is working to achieve free contraceptive services and products for all clients. Burkina Faso’s leadership recognizes the importance of family planning as a key element in the country’s development. Under the auspices of the Prime Minister, the country aims to have a multisectoral coordinating body for issues related to the Demographic Dividend in place by the end of 2018. The latest estimates show continued increase in mCPR, but at a slightly slower rate than in previous years. The country was named a GFF recipient in 2017.

Burkina Faso Revitalized FP2020 Commitment
Burkina Faso is committed to reposition family planning as one of the major strategies of economic and social development. Indeed, it is demonstrated that population growth can a negative impact on the environment and the supply of basic social services to the population (i.e. health, education, housing), Thus the Ministry of Health is working with the support of technical and financial partners to boost the supply of quality services and the public demand for family planning. To do this, one of the expected effects of the new National Economic and Social Development Plan (2016-2020 PNDES), is the development of human capital to accelerate the demographic transition and trigger the demographic dividend. Also, the government is planning to provide free family planning to women in need. The increase in contraceptive prevalence in Burkina Faso (15% in 2010 to 22.5% in 2015) will help reduce high maternal and neonatal mortality.
