The USAID-funded Health Policy Project supported partners at Gondar University to use the FamPlan model to analyze the demographic and family planning program implications of meeting Ethiopia’s Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) targets. The projections show that, if Ethiopia achieves a contraceptive prevalence rate of 73.3 percent by 2020 (the target set by the Federal Ministry of Health), the total fertility rate would fall to less than two children per woman in 2020 and the annual population growth rate would slow to less than 1 percent by 2020. In addition, under-five and infant mortality rates would drop significantly due to increased use of family planning. The model projection also estimated the number of contraceptive commodities required to achieve the target, which can be used to ensure contraceptive security.
