Since first making a commitment to FP2020 in 2012, Pakistan has demonstrated ongoing efforts toward the promotion of family planning. As of this year, all four provinces have drafted Costed Implementation Plans for family planning and developed family planning task forces comprised of public and private sector stakeholders. Each province is also drawing upon domestic resources to procure contraceptives. The government is committed to ensuring a range of available methods in country and has trained mid-level service providers in the public and private sectors to provide IUDs and implants. Additionally, to promote acceptability of family planning, the government is collaborating with men and religious leaders as part of its social mobilization efforts. Punjab, Sindh, and KPK have established health centers specifically for adolescents. To continue promoting strong government commitment, Pakistan will work to strengthen collaboration among regions under a devolved system in order to reach 6.7 million additional users and increase CPR to 50% by 2020.
Pakistan FP2020 Commitment
Pakistan commits to working toward achieving universal access to reproductive health and raising the contraceptive prevalence rate to 55% by 2020. Pakistan will take forward its 2011 commitment with the Provinces for all public and private health facilities to offer birth spacing services. The amount spent on family planning, estimated at US $151 million in 2011/12 will be increased to nearly US $200 million in 2012/13, and further in future years. The federal government assesses the contraceptive requirement as US $186 million over the period 2013 to 2020, which will need to be provided for. Contraceptive services will be included in the essential service package of two provinces in 2012, with the others following in 2013. Supply chain management, training and communication campaigns will be strengthened. Family planning will be a priority for over 100,000 lady health workers, who cover 70% of rural areas. Publicprivate partnerships and contracting out mechanisms will help scale up access, and work with religious leaders and men to promote the benefit of birth spacing will continue.
