Accelerating Contraceptive Choice

Stakeholders in East Africa convened in Nairobi in April 2014 for Accelerating Contraceptive Choice, a regional meeting to increase access to high-quality family planning services in sub-Saharan Africa, beginning in East Africa. Specifically, so that women and men will have access to the widest possible range of contraceptives and accurate information on these methods, enabling them to make an informed, voluntary choice about the method which best fulfills their desires and needs.

The meeting brought together 80 experts in program and policy development and implementation in East Africa and emphasized gains to be made in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda to accelerate contraceptive choice. It provided a platform for exchange of key technical resources, research findings, shared experiences, and the impediments and opportunities for large-scale uptake of proven interventions.
