The Benefits of Family Planning to Avert Infant and Child Deaths in Ethiopia

Author(s): Sintayehu Mulu and Aragaw Lamesgin

Primary Language: English

The Ethiopian Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the Health Policy Project (HPP), recently used the FamPlan model to measure the impact of increased family planning use on the number of infant and child deaths. The results showed that family planning uptake is associated with decreases in high-risk births and infant and child mortality and that faster gains in the contraceptive prevalence rate lead to more dramatic health improvements. This poster—presented at the 2013 International Conference on Family Planning in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia—describes the methodology and results of the model application.
