Mauritania is repositioning family planning to focus on birth spacing as an appropriate strategy to improve the supply of family planning and other health services. The Ministry of Health, with support from technical and financial partners, developed the National Action Plan on Birth Spacing with the ambitious goal of increasing the modern contraceptive prevalence rate for women in union from 11% in 2013 to 18.5% in 2018. Less than two years from the 2018 target, HP+, in collaboration with the Ouagadougou Partnership Coordination Unit, conducted a mid-term review of the plan to identify and analyze successes and shortcomings encountered by the National Program for Reproductive Health in the implementation of the plan. This is a report of the review with recommendations for the plan’s acceleration.
