This report looks at the last 50 years of contraceptive use in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region and how the role of family planning has contributed to a decline in fertility. While many factors have contributed to this decline, this report examines the specific role of family planning in reducing fertility. Its objectives are to document changes in the region in fertility rates and contraceptive use over time, provide a historical overview of organizations, events, and the political environment in the early years of the family planning movement, identify key factors that explain the effectiveness of family planning (FP) programs in this region, and outline remaining challenges, including high rates of adolescent fertility in many LAC countries.
In addition, the report is informed by eight associated case studies that examine the experiences of selected countries of the region: Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Paraguay. The case studies drew on the in-depth interviews held in those countries and conducted for this report.
These documents are available on the Mesaure Evaluation website.
