Family planning is one of the most effective interventions available to save lives and improve the health of women and children. Beyond these health benefits, increasing the contraceptive prevalence rate would allow better capture of the demographic dividend. Aware of this, Senegal has made the strategic choice to make FP a national priority to accelerate the reduction of maternal and infant mortality and sets itself the objective of bringing the CPR from 26% in 2021 to 46% in 2026 for married women.
