Expanding choice in family planning

Choice flowchart

Three types of choice

Choice is the cornerstone of our work. There are three types of choice in family planning that we are working to improve:

1. Choice of whether to use contraception – ensuring that all women and couples, irrespective of education, residence or wealth, can access affordable modern contraceptive services.

2. Choice of provider – public, NGO and private – ensuring that all clients can reach high quality services from a provider they trust within easy distance of their home.
3. Choice of method – ensuring that women and couples can choose the most appropriate method to meet their needs and recognise that these needs may change over the course of their life.
