Uganda’s total fertility, maternal mortality, and teenage pregnancy rates remain among the highest globally. Uganda is committed to scale up the use of modern family planning methods to ensure that every Ugandan woman can choose when and how many children to have. In 2017 it revised its original commitment of 2012 to reduce the unmet need among adolescents from 30.4% in 2016 to 25% in 2021. By improving the number of health structures in hard-to-reach places, the Government of Uganda strives to expand its reach and provision of services and method mix, including long acting, reversible, and permanent methods. These commitments will contribute to the nation’s ambitious goal to reduce unmet need for family planning to 10% and increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate to 50% by 2020.
