Commitments

Since first making their commitment to FP2020 in 2016, Lao PDR has continued to endorse an enabling family planning environment that provides quality and equitable maternal and child health services for poor and remote populations and ethnic minorities. After finalizing a national comprehensive family planning training guide in 2016, Lao trained over 775 new family planning providers in 2017. Additionally, the country has developed a health care law that allows private providers to offer family planning, revised their reproductive health policy, and, in 2017, finalized their Costed Implementation Plan for family planning with a focus on youth activities. To address stockouts, the government is integrating Logistics Management and Information System (LMIS) training into health professionals’ training curricula and training hospital and health center staff on improved data collection and reporting. In the coming months, Lao aims to increase budget advocacy to support demand generation activities, especially those targeting youth. Their goal is to increase mCPR from 42 to 65% by 2020 as well as reduce unmet need for family planning while expanding coverage and method mix.

Core Indicator Estimates

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. For a complete analysis of Lao PDR and these Core Indicators, click below.
