|PSZ plans to improve access to contraception|
|Wednesday, 11 July 2012 12:27|
Today PSZ announces that, to contribute to the long-term family planning goals in Zimbabwe, we pledge to double the number of women using contraception provided through our clinic and outreach network by 2015.
In 2011, over 200 000 women were using a form of modern contraception supplied by PSZ. This doubling of PSZ’s impact will be delivered by maintaining women who are currently using a PSZ supplied contraceptive; offering greater quality and choice of method to other women who are using a method that may not be right for them; and enabling those women, who have never had the opportunity to use contraception, to access the method of their choice.
Population Services Zimbabwe works on the principle of the importance and wisdom of having children by choice instead of chance.
(tubal ligation, vasectomy for men) and these are available in our clinic and outreach network nationwide.
If Population Services Zimbabwe fulfils its pledge, it means that there will be fewer unintended pregnancies, fewer women and girls dying in pregnancy and childbirth and ultimately healthier families in Zimbabwe.
