Abstract: 

This commentary reviews the importance of long-acting and permanent methods (LA/PMs) and considers why they are neglected in many national contraceptive security strategies and family planning programs. It also proposes recommendations for broadening method choice to include LA/PMs more fully and thereby increasing the ability of women and men to achieve their reproductive intentions.
