Abstract:

Since 2003, the U.S. Agency for International Development's Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Contraceptive Security (CS) Initiative has fostered country ownership through CS committees established in eight priority countries. Among the countries in the LAC region, Paraguay’s experience establishing and strengthening a national CS committee serves as a success story for the improvement of reproductive health indicators in a context of increased country ownership. This brief documents the steps taken to ensure that in less than a decade, the CS Committee in Paraguay successfully fostered an enabling policy environment that led to increased financing and political commitment to making contraceptive supplies more easily available.

This brief is based on the following report (only available in Spanish): Sistemitización de la Experiencia del Comité DAIA Paraguay.
