About the product

This wall chart presents the latest data available on key dimensions of reproductive health, including two of the indicators for the Millennium Development Goals, namely, contraceptive prevalence relative to the use of any method and unmet need for family planning. The wall chart shows that universal access to reproductive health is still far from being attained since, in at least each of 40 countries, over 20 per cent of the women of reproductive age who are married or in union have an unmet need for contraception. Nevertheless, at the global level contraceptive use continues to increase.
