Abstract:

The increasing demand for family planning (FP) services, coupled with scarce resources highlights the need to develop and implement strategies that ensure access to FP services for all. One way governments more effectively target decreasing resources is to enact policies that shift FP users who can pay for services from the public to the the private, for-profit sector, thereby lessening financial pressures on governments, donors, and non-profit organizations. In order to assess pricing barriers for contraceptives in Mauritania, HPP conducted a desk review and key informant interviews to develop comprehensive recommendations to revised pricing policies for contraceptives to ensure availability and sustainability of contraceptives.
