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 for married women of reproductive age (15-49) in Burkina Faso has increased to 30.1% [1]. However, 20.2% of married women would like to delay or prevent pregnancy but do not use a modern method of contraception. [2]

AFP’s in-country partner is Équilibres et Populations. Since working closely with the Ministries of Health and Education and implementing partners to pilot integrating sexual and reproductive health modules into school curricula, they are advocating for the implementation of the modules in all schools in the country in the future. Équilibres et Populations continues to engage subnational government leaders for family planning financial support.
