Commitments

Kenya has made great progress toward increased uptake of family planning. A FP2020 commitment maker in 2012, it has recently exceeded its 2020 target of 58% modern contraceptive use by married women. Rather than adjust this target, the government has decided to focus its efforts to expand equitable access to quality care at the county level, where ideal family size ranges from nine children in the northeast to three children in the Nairobi region. Notably the number of counties that have family planning budget allocations has increased; however, they remain a small share of the health budget. Advocates are working to increase domestic financing and reduce donor dependency.
