While the existing contraceptive method mix includes highly effective options, an estimated 214 million women in low- and middle-income countries still have unmet need for family planning. To address this gap, contraceptive technology innovation is needed to do several things:
- Identify more targeted approaches and novel delivery systems
- Refine existing products to reduce side effects and increase user acceptability
- Implement creative strategies to introduce and scale up underused products
K4Health's new topic page on Contraceptive Technology Innovation highlights key messages,the latest essential evidence and tools, and eLearning courses. The topic page includes:
- Overview: of the topic including key messages;
- Take a Course: relevant Global Health eLearning courses;
- Access Tools: several K4Health Toolkits such as Microbicides, Implants, Injectables, and more;
- Review the Evidence: POPLINE searches on various sub-topics; peer reviewed articles from Global Health: Science and Practice;
- Illustrate and Advocate: Images from Photoshare, videos, and other multimedia resources;
- Share and Connect: Blog posts by technical experts at K4Health and colleagues from collaborating organizations

Family planning has been shown to be a “best buy” for governments but in order for voluntary family planning programs to be successful and sustainable, there needs to be strong national capacity to implement and manage programs. Increasing allocation and efficient use of domestic public financing for voluntary family planning at national and sub-national levels is a high impact practice in family planning.The purpose of this brief is to aid ministries of health and family planning programmers, including implementers and advocates, in these countries to increase the value of public expenditure by improving 1) budget allocation, 2) budget execution, and 3) efficiency.
