Featured Publication: Transforming policy through evidence: A new family planning policy in Chad.
National government policies can have a great impact on a country’s family planning services and can function as facilitators for or barriers to effective service provision. In Chad, a country with extremely poor sexual and reproductive health indicators, in recent years the government has shown great commitment to improving family planning service delivery through changes in national policy.
Policy changes have been influenced by evidence from non-governmental organizations working on the ground and a firm commitment of multi-sectorial stakeholders, opening up possibilities for significant expansion of family planning service provision, including long-acting contraceptives (LARCs). Chad’s experience can serve as a model to expand access to sexual and reproductive health services in other countries through similar policy changes.
As CARE®’s experience in Chad shows, evidence-based policy changes can potentially transform the provision of high-quality family planning services. Read the full report.
