World Fertility and Family Planning 2020 Highlights presents new evidence on trends in contraceptive use and fertility, as well as insights into the relationship between contraceptive use and fertility at the global, regional and national levels for women of reproductive age. Contraception assists couples and individuals to achieve their reproductive goals and provides them with the full opportunity to exercise the right to have children by choice.
