Family planning

I have carried out a substantial amount of work on family planning, focusing upon both the socio-cultural challenges and health systems barriers associated with addressing unmet need. I have done extensive work on public-private partnerships using Total Market Approaches, subsidies and franchising. I have particular experience in family planning and reproductive health service provision in emergency settings and significant expertise with programmes serving young people (click here for more details about my work on adolescent reproductive health). My recent work with FP2020 and the Population Council has assessed the causes and consequences of contraceptive discontinuation and reviewed ways of supporting women’s sustained use. I am mindful of how programmes may need to reflect clandestine use in low prevalence settings and in the face of male disapproval. In addition, I have looked at the ways in which human resources influence service provision, especially of LARCs, and have assessed the impact of task-shifting on method mix and uptake.
