In 2015, member states of the United Nations—including Burkina Faso—committed to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. Two of the SDGs are directly related to family planning and numerous others are impacted by family planning—evidence has shown that modern contraceptive use is linked to improved health outcomes, economic progress, educational attainment, and environmental protection. In Burkina Faso, HP+ used the FP-SDGs Model to quantify the benefits of accelerated contraceptive use to help make the case for increased domestic resources for family planning. The results show that if growth in modern contraceptive use is accelerated, progress toward achieving the SDGs would be dramatically boosted. This presentation summarizes results and offers actions that stakeholders can consider to accelerate progress on family planning and the SDGs in Burkina Faso.
