Have you ever wondered how, if at all, census and survey activities relate to family planning and reproductive health? They do, quite a bit. Census data helps countries make more informed decisions when distributing resources to their citizens. For family planning and reproductive health services, the accuracy of these data cannot be emphasized enough. We spoke to members of the United States (U.S.) Census Bureau’s International Program, who shared how their program is helping countries around the world build capacity in census and survey activities.
For robust evidence-based decision making, data and statistics are essential. To ensure proper planning in reproductive health, the accuracy and availability of this data cannot be over emphasized. We spoke to Samuel Dupre, a statistician with the U.S. Census Bureau’s International Program, and Mitali Sen, the International Program’s Chief of Technical Assistance and Capacity Building, who shed light on how the U.S. Census Bureau is supporting data collection on reproductive health.
When public health officials make decisions, they are faced with competing demands on financial resources, conflicting interests, and the imperative to meet national health goals. Decision-makers need tools to help them establish a healthy market, particularly in resource-constrained settings. SHOPS Plus found this to be the case in a recent activity in Tanzania, where their ultimate goal was to engage all the actors in Tanzania’s health market, public and private, to ensure proper targeting of investments and meet the health needs of all Tanzanians.
