1945

Over the past five decades, the use of contraceptive methods has markedly increased such that nearly two in three married or in-union women globally in 2015 were using some form of contraception. The growth in contraceptive use was especially rapid in Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean while it has increased at a much slower pace in several regions of sub-Saharan Africa. The use of modern contraceptive methods accounts for the vast majority of use, although the mix of methods used varies widely across regions and countries. Despite the development of a range of effective methods, in at least one in four countries just one method accounts for 50 per cent or more of all contraceptive use among married or in-union women.
