Today, India is on an economic growth trajectory with a vision to transform itself into a developed nation. The Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007 – 2012) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) help guide national policies and strategies for social and economic development. Through its commitment to achieve universal primary education, improve maternal and child health, and reduce poverty, the country is on the path to realizing its vision – change is possible.
These RAPID briefs (English and Hindi versions) explore India's policies for contraceptive services and shares important information about the country's family planning issues. Policymakers at all levels can take a lead now by putting these policies into action. The benefits of FP are substantial. Renewed commitment to FP will enable Indian couples to achieve their desired family size, while also reducing the impact of India's population growth on its social and economic development.
