Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)
The Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DRC) population reached 69 million in 2009, making it Africa’s fourth most populous country, with a meager modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR) of 7.8%. On November 15, 2013, the Government committed to support family planning – pledging to revitalize services by implementing and financially supporting the DRC’s recently-developed national strategic plan for family planning, reforming laws that pose barriers to planned births, and empowering women.
AFP’s partner in the DRC, Tulane International, is working with the government to support budgetary allocations to family planning according to the National Strategic Plan and Family Planning 2020 commitments. Tulane will also continue to concentrate on better policies for family planning at the national level, and establishment of several Multisectorial Permanent Technical Committees for family planning at the provincial level.
