Contraceptives

Reversing the Stall in Fertility Decline in Western Kenya

Program: Population Dynamics & Reproductive Health

This was an initial three-year demonstration project, which has been extended for another three years. The first three-year phase of the study was implemented in 2010/2012 in four rural districts in Nyanza and Western provinces in Kenya. The demonstration phase of the project sought to increase routine use of modern contraceptives among Kenyan women through a community-based initiative.

The current phase of the project scales up the community-based family planning (FP) initiative in the two large counties of Kenya – Siaya and Busia. The long-term goal of the project is to improve the general health status of the target communities through reducing unwanted and mistimed pregnancies, unsafe/illegal abortion, maternal morbidity and mortality, and fertility rate.

This project is in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation Kenya.
