The DESIP team has worked with the County Departments of Health across 19 counties in Kenya to develop family planning fact sheets which present the latest evidence on reproductive health indicators, family planning uptake and financing gap within each county. The aim of the fact sheets, which will be updated annually, is to present a concise snapshot of the current family planning situation in the county and the benefits that the county government can reap by increasing their investment. Below are examples of the fact sheets developed for the five learning lab counties.

As part of our support to strengthen government ownership at the county level in Kenya, Options has developed a series of policy briefs that make the case for investing in family planning, setting out why it is a ‘best-buy’ for county governments. Each brief presents the evidence of why investing in family planning will lead to health benefits, in terms of estimated maternal and child lives saved, and socio economic gains through the demographic dividend. Policy and programme recommendations are made to relevant stakeholders in each of the learning lab counties.
