A commitment maker since 2012 and a member of the Ouagadougou Partnership, Senegal envisioned entering a phase of very rapid growth, setting a goal of 45% mCPR by 2020. Actual growth has been somewhat lower. However, the country has advanced significantly through innovative approaches such as self-injection of DMPA-SC, involving the private sector, and focusing on youth. Senegal is also working toward Universal Health Coverage, in which family planning would be included. The country recognizes the importance of family planning as they focus on achieving a demographic dividend. In order to improve the service delivery and supply chain, Senegal is strengthening its data management and reporting. Domestic resource mobilization for family planning remains a key challenges for Senegal.
Senegal FP2020 Commitment
Senegal commits to making family planning a national top priority, increasing the commodity budget from the government by 200% and doubling the overall budget for the management of the family planning program. Senegal’s vision is for women to have equal access to high quality and affordable maternal, newborn and child health services, including family planning. Senegal’s action plan builds on six fundamental pillars: 1) generate demand especially through mass media communication and community mobilization with targeted messages for women and to increase involvement of men and young people; 2) leverage networks of religious leaders and national and local champions to advocate for family planning ; 3) improve the supply chain and reduce stock outs to zero especially through the Informed Push Model; 4) improve the quality of care and services; 5) expand mobile outreach, social marketing and franchising to ensure access in peri-urban and rural areas; and 6) generalize communitybased distribution to bring family planning to the most vulnerable and remote areas. Senegal will continue its commitment to introducing innovative approaches to family planning, such as the acceptability study of Depo Provera subQ, a new self-injectable contraceptive that should highly facilitate access for women.
