This USAID-funded Health Policy Project analysis summarizes how one strategy— reducing the unmet need for family planning in line with Malawi’s FP2020 goals—can make achieving and sustaining the MDGs more affordable in Malawi, in addition to directly contributing to the goals of reducing child mortality and improving maternal health. Calculations show that for every dollar invested in family planning between 2013 and 2025, the government of Malawi could save five dollars in other social services such as education, immunization, malaria, maternal health, and water and sanitation.
