2017 Update: Read the commitment here

2012: Pakistan will engage with provinces to implement the Minister's directive to provide birth spacing services in health facilities at all levels. Contraceptive services will be included in the essential service package of two provinces in 2012, with the others following in 2013.

Pakistan commits to making FP a priority for over 100,000 LHWs, who cover 70% of rural areas. They will strengthen LHW quality of care by regularizing their employment status, providing training, and reinforcing referral links between LHWs, community midwives, and nearby facilities. Pakistan will strengthen supply chain management, training and communication campaigns. A modern state of the art storage tracking system at the Central Contraceptive Warehouse in Karachi has been installed.

Pakistan is working to scale up access through public-private partnerships and contracting-out mechanisms, and to scale up work with religious and community leaders and men to promote the benefits of birth spacing. There will also be efforts to increase the focus on men in communications messages, mobilization activities, and services (through the increased availability of vasectomy services and condom distribution).

The provinces are planning other initiatives, such as:

  • Strengthening procurement and logistic systems for timely, regular and uninterrupted availability of contraceptives at all public service delivery points;
  • Improving the technical and communication skills of service providers for better service quality; and
  • Placing greater emphasis on communication for generating more demand, raising awareness, and changing behavior.
