For Zimbabwe, a commitment maker since 2012, ensuring that all women of reproductive age have access to quality family planning services by 2020 is a priority. While grappling with a persistent shortage of health providers, the Ministry of Health is intent on improving access and uptake of voluntary contraceptive services among adolescents and reducing their unmet need for modern methods of family planning from 12.6% to 8.5% by 2020. Committed to expanding method options and ensuring informed choice, the government in collaboration with partners is training health facility service providers to offer a comprehensive package of family planning services that includes long-acting and reversible methods.
Zimbabwe FP2020 Commitment
Zimbabwe commits to ensuring that women and girls have greater access to quality sexual and reproductive health services and will reduce the unmet need for family planning from 13% to 6.5% by 2020. The family planning budget, including the procurement of contraceptive commodities, will be doubled from the current 1.7% to 3% of the health budget. This includes support for improved access for women and girls from the poorest wealth quintiles, including the removal of user fees for family planning services by 2013. Zimbabwe will improve method mix and strengthen the integration of family planning with reproductive health, HIV and maternal health services; develop innovative service delivery models to meet the needs and rights of adolescent girls; and reduce their unmet need from 16.9% to 8.5% by 2020. Zimbabwe will strengthen public-private partnerships, including civil society organizations in the provision of community-based and outreach services and implement a national campaign to increase national awareness of family planning, and health worker training and sensitization.
