Developing Total Market Strategies for Family Planning in Nicaragua: Enhancing Public-Private Coordination for Equity and Sustainability

In 2009, PATH worked in Nicaragua to expand civil society engagement in the government-led contraceptive security group; secured a public commitment from the Ministry of Health in 2010 to increase coordination with all sectors; and assembled evidence to help promote changes and facilitate a collaborative planning process with the private sector to support family planning. This case study highlights lessons learned and recommendations for those considering similar initiatives in other settings.
