2012—London Family Planning Summit
Cote d’Ivoire’s President has issued a Declaration on Maternal Health. Family planning availability through health facilities will increase from 60% in 2010 to 100% in 2015, and community based services will be strengthened. Resources allocated to family planning will be increased, including contraceptive commodities. Contraceptives have been included in the recommended list of essential medicines and subsidized to improve affordability. The family planning method mix will be expanded, and access to family planning methods for women living with HIV and youth will be provided as part of national strategy to eliminate mother-child transmission.
Côte d’Ivoire commits to ensure the provision of free health services for all pregnant women during delivery, including free caesarian-sections, for women affected by obstetric fistula, and for children under 5. Côte d’Ivoire also commits to rehabilitate maternity centres, provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets for women and children under 5; to strengthen the integrated management of childhood illnesses programmes; and to integrate HIV and Sexual and Reproductive Health, and community involvement in health management, including training health workers to ensure the provision of family planning at the community level.
