Family Planning Survey

The family planning has a prime objective to reduce the unmet need for contraception and high-risk births in the Philippines. This is also to promote family planning as a health intervention to improve health status of all Filipinos, especially women and children. The Family Planning Survey (FPS) presents up-to-date figures on the use of contraceptives, unmet need for family planning and high-risk fertility behavior. It also aimed to provide information on contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR), contraceptive methods, contraceptive discontinuation, reasons for not using contraceptive, the source of supply of contraceptive method used, and high-risk fertility behavior. The survey also generates important information on maternal and child health indicators.
