Cameroon - Increasing the Uptake of Long-acting Reversible Contraceptives Among Adolescent and Young Women 2017-2018

Description: 

Cameroon exhibits a high level of maternal mortality (roughly 600 per 100,000 live births), partially related to its high total fertility rate (roughly 4.6).

Despite this, the rate of utilization of family planning (FP) is low: e.g. only 48% of sexually active unmarried women use any form of (modern) contraception, or MC, and even then, it is primarily condoms. The use of LARCs (long-acting reversible contraceptives...
