Bangladesh: The Private Sector's Contributions to Family Planning Market Growth

The Bangladeshi family planning market experienced significant growth from 1994 to 2014. Over that 20-year period, the modern contraceptive prevalence rate among married women increased from 36.6 percent to 54.1 percent. The private sector played a large role in this market growth. A SHOPS Plus analysis revealed several economic, sociocultural, policy, and programmatic factors that facilitated the private sector’s contributions to increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate. Understanding these factors can help donors and country governments better consider appropriate private health sector investments and interventions in their family planning programs.
