The private sector can play an important role in sustaining the success of family planning (FP) in Rwanda. Through public-private partnerships (PPPs), the government can make more efficient use of public resources by targeting and meeting the needs of specific populations and thus help ensure FP services and products will be available to all Rwandans in the long term. To gain a better understanding of Rwanda's FP market and various poverty-related inequities within it, the Health Policy Initiative conducted a secondary analysis of Rwanda's Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) by disaggregating national wealth quintiles by place of residence. This analysis produced detailed information on Rwanda's FP clients (age, education level, socioeconomic status, place of residence); providers (who they are, what products/services they offer, whom they serve, and their respective roles vis-à-vis the client as well as each another); and products and services.
This report aims to inform stakeholders working to strengthen family planning through multisectoral partnerships about Rwanda's FP market (clients and providers, as well as products and services) based on analysis conducted by the USAID | Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1.
