Total votes: 1905

In February 2011, representatives from eight francophone West African countries attended the
“Population, Development, and Family Planning in West Africa: An Urgency for Action” Conference
in Ouagadougou to discuss how to accelerate progress. Participating countries included Benin,
Burkina Faso, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo, with Ivory Coast joining the
initiative later. Country delegations arrived at an important consensus, all agreeing to take concrete
actions to increase the uptake of family planning in their respective countries. A similar commitment
formed among the donors at the conference, who came together to pledge unprecedented
cooperation and coordination in support of family planning in West Africa.


This report presents targeted areas of investments in family planning to spur progress in West
Africa. It provides recommendations for advancing family planning, mobilizing political commitment
and resources, and coordinating resources and actions.
