Family planning is a cost-effective intervention for improving maternal and newborn health and contributes to overall socio-economic well-being. Users of family planning are conscientiously aware of their ability to time their pregnancies and determine the number of children they wish to have based on preference. Yet, the level of unmet need for using family planning is unacceptably high, especially in the developing world including the Pacific region. To reduce the unmet need, family planning services should be repackaged in appealing and user-friendly ways that create demands and improve access to services.
