FP2020 A Closer Look at Postpartum Family Planning Data and Advocacy
The purpose of the series of opportunity briefs developed by Track20 are to aid in prioritisation. There are multiple interventions that countries may invest in but choosing the right interventions starts with the data. The briefs are drawn from country specific data using DHS surveys to answer questions about the extent to which there are opportunities to grow mCPR within a country context. Opportunities are not created equal and depend on demographics, on the distribution of variables, and the linkage between factors that influence growth and mCPR. Opportunities assessed include evaluating demand for services, levels of need among sub-populations like youth and post-partum women, the supply of services, the environment for service provision, and quality and equity in provision.
