By increasing the domestic financing to sexual and reproductive health commodities, Ethiopia is experiencing an improvement in the contraceptive prevalence rate. In 2000, the rate was as low as 6% and increased to 36% in 2016. The current data for 2019 shows an increment of 41%.
UNFPA supports Ethiopia with the procurement of family planning commodities and technical assistance that has strengthened the country's supply chain management system.
