Exploring geographical variations in unmet need for contraception in Ghana by means of small area estimates.

Abstract

The importance of meeting unmet need for contraception has been reaffirmed recently with the introduction of a new indicator on unmet need as part of MDG5. Nowhere is this more urgent than the sub-Saharan African countries where stalled fertility declines are seen and unmet need affects more than 20% of women. In Ghana, fertility has fallen in some parts of the country but not in others.
