UGANDA: Increased Availability of Contraceptive Implants

New Vision on 2 April reported on the Jadelle implant, a long time reversible contraceptive implant. "In Uganda, 41% of women want to space or stop having children but they lack access to contraceptives, information and the services themselves. Globally, the implant has been one of the underutilized methods of family planning. That’s why there has been a global massive shift towards a rights-based approach to family planning. This necessitates the need to empower women with family planning services and available information to make a choice. 'As long as the individual has services, means and all the available methods at their disposal, they should have the capacity to make an informed decision about their family planning,' says Dr Ismail Ndifuna the National Program Officer, United Nations Population Fund."
