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.

Core Indicator Estimates

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.
