The Family Planning and Reproductive Health Indicators Database

That One Thing - The one FP/RH update you need to focus on this week

Dear Family Planning Champion,

Contraceptive prevalence rate. Couple-years protection. Condom availability for young people. These are just a few family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) indicators that guide program evaluation and learning. Unless you are an evaluation expert, the process of selecting indicators can often feel overwhelming.


Data for Impact (D4I) recently launched a database that can help you easily reference and select FP/RH indicators to measure your work.

It also contains definitions, data requirements, data sources, purposes, and issues for core indicators along with links to websites and documents containing additional indicators.
