Abstract:

Updated analyses on the costs of meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) indicate that countries would save money by investing in family planning programs. For example, in the nine francophone countries in West Africa, if governments provide family planning services to women who want to space or limit future births, countries would realize considerable savings in programs designed to address MDGs for maternal and child health, environmental sustainability, communicable diseases, and primary education. The savings in reduced costs outweigh the additional costs of providing family planning by a factor of 3 to 1 for the nine francophone countries as a whole. Summaries of the findings for the region in each country are available in English and French.
