star this property answer text <p>The ‘Delivering Sustainable and Equitable Increases in Family Planning in Kenya’ programme will take an integrated approach to sexual and reproductive health and rights in order to meet a wide range of women’s reproductive health needs. Because these services are to be integrated, it is not possible to disaggregate figures solely relating to safe abortion procedures. Over the life of the programme, it is expected to reach 322,000 additional users and it will provide 2.3 million Couple Years of Protection (CYP) and avert 2,221 maternal deaths.</p><p>The aim of DFID’s work on sexual and reproductive health and rights is to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and unsafe abortions, increase the use of voluntary family planning, and give women control over their own bodies and lives.</p> more like this

The WHO review will not be able to provide definitive numbers on the scale of this problem but will provide information on detention in hospitals for a policy brief that is expected by the end of 2019. DFID will ensure we respond to the policy brief. It will inform how we contribute to the long-term approach to promote financing reforms to benefit the poor and reduce out-of-pocket health expenditure.</p> more like this

Although some country programmes do charge for clients who can afford to pay, they employ a no-refusal policy to allow clients that are poor. Proceeds from these services are used to further access for the poorest and most marginalised.</p>
