Use of contraceptive supplies around the world has given couples a chance to choose the number and spacing of
their children and has had remarkable lifesaving benefits. Healthy time and spacing for pregnancies is helpful for
mother’s and newborn’s health. Yet despite these efforts, contraceptive use is still low in Pakistan. In this paper
an annual comparison of contraceptive commodities in Punjab obtained by Bureau of statistics and Pakistan
Development statistics has been made. A consolidation of contraceptive commodities of first quarter of 2015 in
Punjab in collaboration with Policy and Strategic Planning Unit (PSPU) and Integrated Reproductive Mother,
Neonatal and Child Health (IRMNCH) & Nutrition Program of Punjab has been discussed. Suggestions have
been given that how use of FP services can be improved through filling gaps for the implementation and
evaluation of FP2020 initiatives. Family planning commodities requires a strategy for bridging the gaps to
overcome the unmet needs.
