This publication is one of eight case studies that were developed as part of a broader review entitled Family Planning in Latin America and the Caribbean: The Achievements of 50 Years. As its title implies, the larger review documents and analyzes the accomplishments in the entire region since the initiation of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) funding in the early 1960s.
It is evident that the family planning program in the Dominican Republic has made tremendous strides, particularly in expansion of coverage. However, program sustainability requires coordination of efforts, political will, technical capacity, and financial support to reduce unmet need.
Other case studies in this series review family planning achievements in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Paraguay. An executive summary for the report is also available.
