World Contraception Day

Our goal is to help young Kenyans make great decisions when it comes to owning their sexual health by giving them the tools, information and confidence they need. We believe every young Kenyan deserves to have a bright future, and that barriers that they often experience can easily be avoided or overcome. We're on a journey to knowing more and doing better.

With so many birth control options available, choosing a most suitable form can be discouraging for many teens. We support youth worldwide to answer initial questions: Which method protects against STIs? What about convenience of use? How effective are they?

In 2021, The Ministry of Health (MoH) in collaboration with stakeholders hosted an event whose theme was ‘Sustaining Family Planning Services during the COVID-19 pandemic while marching towards sustainable domestic financing of Family Planning in Kenya’.

The occasion was used to raise awareness on how Family Planning choices and opportunities have changed for girls and women since the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a platform to mobilize support and goodwill for prioritization and continuation of Family Planning services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kenya has made outstanding progress in increasing access to modern methods for fertility management from 36% of married women using modern methods of family planning at the launch of the World Contraceptive Day campaign in 2007 to a current regional high of 62%. The Kenyan Government is committed to providing quality family planning services. In 2019 and 2020, UNFPA mobilized USD. 4.8 Million and US$ 3.1 million respectively towards Family Planning  intervention in Kenya through the Ministry of Health.

With support from various international partners and the Government of Kenya, previous efforts have translated to the prevention of over 1,464,068 unintended pregnancies, nearly 1,439 maternal deaths and aversion of 890,168 unsafe abortions over the next three years.

Providing access to contraceptives and reproductive health services helps women thrive and prosper in economies hit by the COVID 19 pandemic.There is a need for strong investment in Family Planning as an intervention for saving lives.
