The Ouagadougou Partnership aspires to reposition family planning across nine Francophone West African countries and committed to reach an additional 2.2 million women and girls with modern methods of contraception by 2020. With just one year left to realize the regional goal, more domestic resources must be allocated and spent on these programs. To help make the case for increased domestic resources for family planning programs, HP+ quantified the benefits of accelerated contraceptive use across the partnership. The results show that if growth in modern contraceptive use is accelerated, progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) would be dramatically boosted. This brief summarizes results and offers actions that stakeholders can consider to accelerate progress on family planning and the SDGs across the region.
