A commitment maker since 2013 and a member of the Ouagadougou Partnership, Benin has made steady progress towards its commitment to increase mCPR to 22%. One factor in this progress is the expansion of the range of method choice available, with the introduction of DMPA-SC in 10 health zones, with plans for national scale-up soon. Another factor is the country's commitment to providing free family planning services within health centers to the population by the end of 2019. Benin is currently on track to honor this commitment. Adolescents and young people are already accessing family planning services for free, and an executive order is currently awaiting signature to allow for free access for all. Challenges certainly remain, with financing for commodities from the national level down to the community and ensuring last mile distribution of commodities.

Benin Revitalized FP2020 Commitment
Bangladesh is committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The recently approved 4th Health Sector Programme, 2017-2021, of the health ministry, will put the country on track to attaining the targets by 2030. Family planning remains one of the top priorities of the programme. Bangladesh commits to achieving its family planning objectives by implementing the post-partum action plan, regional family planning package for the lagging Sylhet and Chittagong divisions, and the national adolescent health strategy in a time-bound, efficient and effective manner. For this, the Government of Bangladesh will mobilize USD 615 million for the family planning programme over 2017-2021, which is a 67% increase in allocation from that of the previous programme. It will help improve the quality of family planning services through a health systems approach. Access to trained service providers will be increased, including through deployment of midwives to all sub-district hospitals. Supervision of family planning services will be strengthened by placing clinical teams in all districts. Further work with the private sector will help address gaps in service provision and will ensure a steady supply of commodities.
