A nation-wide survey across public health services in Townships has revealed that while most health facilities have access to supplies, they have experienced stockouts in the past six months. The survey, completed in June 2014, will form the basis for measuring progress in Myanmar of family planning and reproductive health services over the next six years. This is part of its commitment to halve the unmet need for family planning among women of reproductive age by 2020. Contraceptive use in Myanmar should increase from 39.5% to 50% and the unmet need should be reduced to less than 10% from its current level of 24%.
