Despite improvements in family planning programming, millions of women are still not receiving quality information and services. Among these women are adolescents, the poor, the least educated, and ethnic and religious minorities.
Building on existing methodologies in health, HP+ customized an approach for diagnosing inequities in family planning program components for disadvantaged groups at national and subnational levels. This replicable approach identifies inequities in both family planning care—the accessibility, acceptability, and quality of services—and outcomes among a diverse range of the commonly disadvantaged.
This webinar showcases the approach and results from its application to Uganda, focusing on the sub-regions, disadvantaged sub-groups, and family planning components for which inequities are most pervasive and where policy and program interventions should be targeted.
