About

The interest and importance of family planning led the Government of Benin to have the National Assembly vote on March 3, 2003, Law No. 2003-03 relating to sexual health and reproduction. Benin has been making steady progress since its commitment to increase the prevalence rate of modern contraceptives. For 2026, the country’ objective is to improve access and supply for all women by increasing contraceptive prevalence rate from 11.7% to 18%.
