Family Planning and Reproductive Health (FP-RH)

While Bangladesh has seen impressive progress in family planning, challenges still remain that have relatively slowed own the progress in the last 10 years. For instance, regional variations persist in the use of contraception; short term non-clinical methods dominate contraceptive use, and use of LARC/PM remains stagnant at very low levels. In addition, adolescent fertility in the country is one of the highest in the world with low levels of contraceptive use while country-level information on the overall adolescent health is limited.
