Who needs family planning?
Family Planning remains a key health priority, even in countries that have large percentages of people infected with HIV/AIDS. Unmet need for contraception remains high in many developing countries. In Zambia, for example, nearly 30% of women of reproductive age were reported to have an unmet need for contraception in 2002; in Ethiopia unmet need was nearly 35%. Need remains especially great among poor women. In Kenya, unmet need among women in the lowest wealth quintile was nearly four times that of women in the richest quintile.
