Kenya Hits Target as Married Women Embrace Family Planning

The contraceptives prevalence rate among married women of reproductive age has risen from 53 percent in 2014 to 61 percent last year, according to new data from the Ministry of Health.

The rise has seen Kenya surpass its 2020 target of 58 percent.

Family planning services and programmes have important health, social, financial, environmental and economic benefits.

Decades of research have shown that better access to contraception helps people to plan and space for pregnancies.
