The Power of Choice: Pregnancy by Choice not Chance

This booklet is a narrative of real life stories and experiences on how women's, girls' and families' reproductive health has been affected and changed by family planning services provided through UNFPA support, in collaboration with
other partners and under the leadership of the Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Health and Child Care and Zimbabwe National Family Planning Council. We are cognisant of the many hurdles faced by women
especially younger women in accessing contraceptives and family planning service. UNFPA will continue to work tirelessly in advocating for domestic resource allocation towards contraceptive commodity security, increased access
to contraceptives by young women, and improvement in the family planning method mix, in its endeavour to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled.

UNFPA Zimbabwe Country Office has been at the forefront in supporting the Zimbabwe government in ensuring the availability and accessibility of voluntary contraceptive and family planning services to women, girls and couples
who need them. This has been done through technical and financial support towards procurement of contraceptives or family planning commodities including sundries, service provider capacity strengthening, awareness and demand
generation and supply chain management. The UNFPA Zimbabwe Country Office has also supported research, which generates data that supports programming.
