Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso hosted the first Ouagadougou Partnership Conference in February 2011, which led to nine Francophone West African leaders prioritizing family planning within their own countries and in the region. Since then, modern contraceptive use women of reproductive age (15-49) in Burkina Faso has increased, but is still low at 22%.[1]

AFP’s in-country partner is Équilibres et Populations, with technical support from Palladium West Africa.

They work closely with the government and implementing partners to support a pilot task-sharing family planning service provision at the community level, with plans to advocate for better policies around task-sharing in the future. Équilibres et Populations  will engage the private sector and subnational government leaders for financial support for family planning.
