How does family planning affect total fertility rate?

An increase in contraceptive use leads to a reduction in the number of births which, all other things being equal, means fewer maternal deaths, fewer stillbirths, and fewer children exposed to the risk of mortality.

What are the main objectives of family planning?

  2. Strengthen fragile health systems.
  3. Take action to tackle blocks.
  4. Manage funding for better innovation.

What is replacement fertility level?
