Access

While the country seems to have made satisfactory progress in the use of family planning methods, there are issues and factors that still stand in the way of full access of services that need to be addressed like high fertility rates among some women, teenage pregnancy and youth sexuality, sexual dysfunctions, increase in reproductive tract malignancies, use of unreliable contraceptive methods by people, infertility etc.
