The increasing demand for family planning (FP) services coupled with decreases resources highlights the need to develop and implement strategies to ensure access to FP services for all. One way for governments to do this is to enact policies that facilitate market segmentation for contraceptives to shift financial pressures on governments, donors, and non-profit organizations from the public to private, for-profit sector. This report highlights results from a desk review and key informant interviews in Burkina Faso which assess pricing policies for contraceptives and provide recommendations to ensure availability and sustainability of contraceptives.
