A commitment maker since 2013, the DRC has a mix of solid family planning advancements as well as extreme family planning challenges. Kinshasa shows a lot of family planning service provision in both public and private clinics and a higher mCPR compared to the rest of the country, and focuses on introducing new advances such as self-injection for DMPA-SC. A number of provinces remain in conflict, leading to limited to no access to family planning products and/or services, as well as supply chain problems. In order to advance family planning, the country is focusing on getting its RH/FP law accepted and approved by the government, aims to establish and finance a budget line for family planning and increase access to FP services and commodities for all, including youth.
