To improve FP services and availability in Jordan, the Higher Population Council (HPC), with support from the Health Policy Project and in cooperation with all stakeholders, developed the National Reproductive Health/Family Planning Strategy 2013–2017. The strategy assesses the reproductive health (RH)/family planning (FP) environment in Jordan and describes the interventions required to improve RH/FP services and use and ultimately achieve the goals of the Demographic Opportunity Policy.
This brief summarizes the three main challenges to Jordan’s FP program—policy, access, and beliefs and behaviors—and outlines the interventions planned to address them.
