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.
