Full Document (pdf 460.7 kb)
To measure the change in Jordan's policy environment over time, USAID's POLICY Project and Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1, have adminstered the Policy Environment Score (PES) on three occasions: April–August 1997, June–August 2000, and December–January 2008/2009. This report focuses on the results of the 2008/2009 family planning portion of the PES survey and compares the results of the three surveys. The report also briefly examines the results from other sections of the survey, including safe pregnancy, adolescents, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)/AIDS, and postabortion care.
The PES is intended to measure the degree to which the policy environment in a particular country supports programs to improve the reproductive health of the population. It is designed to reflect both the level of policy support and changes that take place over a specified period.
