- The OP response, while recognizing the need for strong measures against COVID-19, must preserve the achievements in sexual and reproductive health, and protect the right of women and families to FP now and beyond 2020.
- The OPCU developed innovative strategies to achieve its objective with a focus on youth, research, social norms, family planning in humanitarian contexts with an increased contribution from civil society.
We envision a Francophone West Africa where easy access to quality family planning services saves and improves women’s and young people’s lives and serves as a catalyst for sustainable development for all.
From 2011 to 2021, most Ouagadougou Partnership countries doubled their contraceptive prevalence rates. Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Togo added 4 million modern contraceptive users.
As a result, 18,848,000 unintended pregnancies, 6,697,500 unsafe abortions and 63,740 maternal deaths were averted. The current goal is to reach 13 million users by 2030, thus doubling the current 6.5 million.
The Ouagadougou Partnership (OP) has made great strides in the past 10 years in ensuring increased family planning services and users in the 9 member countries. However numerous challenges remain for the region and therefore the OP developed a Beyond 2020 strategy to catalyze even more progress by 2030.
