Kenya: Annual Review of Family Planning Programme

The MannionDaniels team, led by Director David Daniels, conducted the Annual Review of the Delivering Increased Family Planning Across Rural Kenya (DIFPARK) programme in January 2014.  With funding from DFID, DIFPARK is designed to respond to the needs of the Government of Kenya in reducing unmet need and increasing the contraceptive prevalence rate. Its overall goal is to increase FP uptake in Kenya with the impact of reducing maternal and newborn deaths. The programme intends to increase new users of family planning, primarily through the private sector, utilising a total market approach and providing complementary support to the public sector to ensure the provision of quality FP services. It has been designed with specific emphasis on increasing access to family planning by rural women and young adolescent girls (15-19 years of age).  The programme is managed by a consortium led by the Futures group and includes Jhpiego, JHU-CCP, Save the Children, Exp Social Marketing and Well Told Story.  The programme operates across 23 counties.  The annual review assessed progress under the first phase of programme implementation and provided an overview of progress as well as recommendations to the programme management agent.
