Abstract
Family planning has been on the reproductive health agenda since the 1960s and today many effective and safe birth control methods are available, yet the level of unmet need for contraception remains high. Increasing the level of contraceptive use among women of child bearing age is an important component of many national population and developmental programs in sub-Saharan Africa; however the coverage of these methods are still low despite the efforts of many governmental and nongovernmental agencies (NGOs). Due to high unmet need for family planning and its subsequent effect, many women in Ethiopia are experiencing the challenges of abortion and unwanted child birth. As a result, the Federal Ministry of Health of Ethiopia has allowed the distribution of contraceptives in drug stores and the provision of safe abortion services in medical setup for those who demand the service under certain conditions such as rape, incest, sexual violence, etc. Lack of access to modern contraception is an issue for countless women and couples in Ethiopia and around the world. But, what about the physical and financial barriers to access aren’t the problem? What about personal, educational, and cultural barriers? Studies show that these types of obstacles may be equally responsible for the high prevalence of unintended pregnancies we see today, more than 50 years after the introduction of the birth control pill.
