Jordan Family Planning Assessment
Modern family planning uptake is stalling in Jordan, despite nearly universal knowledge of contraceptive methods, high rates of female literacy, support for spacing births, and several years of increase in the contraceptive prevalence rate.
To understand exactly what caused this plateau in Jordan, the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University conducted an assessment of USAID/Jordan’s family planning contributions over the last decade. The assessment explores reasons for fertility stagnation in Jordan and attempted to tell the backstory of USAID programming in family planning.
