Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health - Pakistan 2012 commitmentsf

Date of commitment: 
September 2012


At the 2012 London Family Planning Summit Pakistan committed to working toward achieving universal access to reproductive health and raising the contraceptive prevalence rate to 55% by 2020. Pakistan committed to take forward its 2011 commitment with the Provinces for all public and private health facilities to offer birth spacing services. The amount spent on family planning, estimated at US $151 million in 2012/13 will be increased to nearly US $200 million in 2012/13, and further in future years. The federal government assessed the contraceptive requirement as US $186 million over the period 2013 to 2020, which will need to be provided for. Contraceptive services were to be included in the essential service package of two provinces in 2012, with the others following in 2013. Supply chain management, training and communication campaigns will be strengthened. Family planning will be a priority for over 100,000 lady health workers, who cover 70% of rural areas. Public-private partnerships and contracting out mechanisms will help scale up access, and work with religious leaders and men to promote the benefit of birth spacing will continue.
