Note: FP2020 uses a rolling baselines so values are recalculated each year based on the newset available data.
Social, cultural, and religious norms in Egypt have sometimes caused family planning to be stigmatized. Reversing a more than 25-year pattern of declining fertility, the average number of children a woman has in her lifetime increased substantially between the 2008 and 2014 demographic and health surveys, from a level of 3.0 births per woman to 3.5 births per woman. A recent commitment-maker, the Government of Egypt is committed to safeguarding the health of its women and girls and mitigating the rate of its population growth by expanding its contraceptive programs, and improving the quality of services to attract new users while expanding contraceptive method choice.
Egypt FP2020 Commitment
The Government of Egypt pledges to:
1. Reduce unmet need for family planning (FP) from 12.6% in 2014 to 10.6% by 2020, and the 12-month discontinuation rate from 29% in 2014 to 24% by 2020.
2. Increase prevalence rate of all contraceptive methods used among married women (CPR) from 58.5% in 2014 to 62.8% by 2020.

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.
