Helping couples achieve their desired family size through family planning (FP) leads to benefits at the individual, household, and societal levels. Good public policies can be adopted to help satisfy unmet need for family planning, slow rapid population growth, and, ultimately, reduce pressure on social services, the economy, and natural resources. With the emergence of other health and development priorities, however, family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs have experienced waning support. Across sub-Saharan Africa, concerted advocacy is needed to place family planning high on the policy agenda.
