  • FAMILY PLANNING

At My Health Africa, we understand the importance of family planning and therefore in this section, we will focus on topics that will help people across Africa make informed decisions on Family planning.

Family planning is simply being able to determine the number of children one wants and the spacing between them. The most common family planning method is the use of modern contraceptives, which rose globally from 54% in 1990 to 57.4% in 2015.

In Africa the number of women who use modern contraceptives rose by 5%, from 23.6% in 1990 to 28.5% in 2015. Even though this number has risen over the years, there are still 214 million women in developing countries who do not use modern contraceptives for family planning.
