Zambia is dedicated to improving sustainable access to family planning and achieving the goals it set out in 2012, specifically to increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate among married women to 58% by 2020. Zambia is addressing policy barriers adversely impacting the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and young people and is scaling up access to family planning through a variety of contraceptive methods and services in the hardest to reach places. The Government of the Republic of Zambia is poised to increase domestic financing for the procurement of contraceptives, and committed to addressing policy barriers adversely impacting the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents and young people
Zambia FP2020 Commitment
Zambia will double its budgetary allocation to family planning commodities, striving to eliminate the unmet need for family planning and improve universal coverage through an expanded method mix and increased access, particularly to the underserved population. It will address policy barriers to allow task shifting to community health assistants and trained community based distributors to increase access to the underserved communities. Led by the Ministry of Community Development Mother and Child Health, the government will initiate new dialogue with religious and traditional leaders at local level to generate demand, dispel the myths and ‘open up the dialogue’ on family planning.

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions.
