Hello,

One in every five married women in Kenya uses implants as a method of contraception, according a global report on health. Data to support this was presented through a review and analysis paper during the annual Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition (RHSC) Conference in Brussels, Belgium, last month. The paper titled "Lift off: The blossoming of contraceptive use in Africa" draws data from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and the Performance Monitoring and Accountability (PMA) 2020 surveys. The paper analyses recent changes in contraceptive use among married and sexually active unmarried women in 12 countries -- Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe -- that make up 61 per cent of Sub-Saharan Africa's population. Number quadrupled The 2008-09 Kenya Demographics Health Survey (KDHS) showed that implant prevalence rate among married women was only 1.9 per cent.
