FPwatch Readiness Results to be Presented May 23
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Three Millennium Development Goal Fund, FPwatch is a 3-year research project led by Population Services International (PSI) to assess public and private sector readiness to offer modern contraceptive methods to women. Project staff conducted interviews and audits of more than 23,000 outlets in five priority FP 2020countries: Ethiopia, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Myanmar, and India. Generated evidence will help inform national strategies and policies aimed at achieving the FP2020 commitment to provide contraceptive access to an additional 120 million women by 2020.
Research findings will be presented at a webinar on Tuesday, May 23, starting at 11:30. Registration is open until May 18th. The results sharing event will focus on the contraceptive market landscape in these FP2020 countries and offer strategic recommendations to inform family planning strategies. The presentation will include discussion around the following questions:
Which modern method is behind the takeoff of long-acting reversible contraception in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and DRC, and how can we increase LARC access?
Which private sector outlet type shows the greatest contraceptive market potential in FPwatch countries?
How are community health workers improving rural contraceptive access?
