ed voucher program on the uptake of LAPMs.

  • Researchers documented a significant increase in LAPMs among poor women in villages exposed to the voucher program, compared to villages without access to voucher services (6 percent net increase - difference in difference - over 20 months; p<0.05). Researchers recommended that future programs incorporate routine performance measures to facilitate regular assessment of the impact of voucher programs on LAPM usage.

    "Until now, there have been no controlled studies evaluating the effect of a voucher program on the uptake of LAPMs in Kenya," said Ben Bellows. "This study gives us new insights on the ability of a family planning voucher program to positively influence a woman's use of LAPMs in low-resource areas with high unmet needs."

    Interventions to Promote Gender Equity

    New Council research evaluated men's attitudes toward family planning and demonstrated the positive impact of programs that strengthen gender equity.

    • Results from a previous Council study recommended encouraging male involvement as a way to increase access to family planning in Ghana. Results from this additional study indicated that while both men and women are aware of contraceptive methods, most men may not support family planning.

    • Contributing factors include perceived loss of social prestige, loss of control in the household, misinformation, fear of side effects, and concerns related to religion and cost. In scenarios where men do not consent to using contraception, most women seek these services secretly, which often leads to marital conflicts and divorce.

    • In this new study, researchers recommended strengthening the focus of programs so they actively encourage
