Madagascar committed to FP2020 in 2015, and has seen some key improvements to the country’s family planning progress since. After years of advocacy from the FP2020 focal points among others, the government promulgated the renewal of the RH/FP Law in January 2018. In the fall of 2017, the country launched its first costed implementation plan for family planning. With an mCPR of 40.9% in 2018, Madagascar is the francophone country with the highest contraceptive prevalence, yet the country still has significant work to reach its goal of 50% by 2020. The country aims to have a strong focus on youth health, supported by the new law, as well as community based distribution, improving contraceptive security, engaging the private sector, and increasing domestic resources for family planning.

The government of Madagascar commits to developing a favorable environment for family planning by revising key framework and legislative policies and enforcing laws related to family planning. It also commits to improving access to free family planning services for youth and increasing the family planning budget by at least 5 percent annually.
Growing the Postpartum Family Planning Movement
Much remains to be done to ensure that all postpartum women in Madagascar understand the benefits of healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies, and have access to the PPFP contraceptive method of their choice.
Madagascar Revitalized FP2020 Commitment
