Commitments

The South African government committed to strengthening its family planning programs, service delivery, and policies in 2012. The government pledged to prioritize the strengthening of family planning services while emphasizing dual protection, and to develop standard operating procedures for community health workers to best promote family planning. In addition, South Africa committed to implementing a school health program to provide information on reproductive health rights to girls. The South African government revised its contraception and fertility policy using a human rights framework and developed a new policy. This new policy requires the full range of family planning methods to be made available at public health facilities.

Core Indicator Estimates

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries as well as South Africa. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions. For a complete analysis of South Africa and these Core Indicators, click below.
