Contraceptive Security: Incomplete Without Long-Acting and Permanent Methods of Family Planning
This commentary reviews the importance of long-acting and permanent methods (LA/PMs) of family planning and considers why they have been neglected in national contraceptive security strategies and family planning programs. The article also provides recommendations for broadening method choice to include LA/PMs more fully, thereby increasing the ability of women and men to achieve their reproductive intentions. Studies in Family Planning, Volume 42, Number 4, December 2011, pages 291-298.
