  • a Source of countrywide CPR data: Pakistan 2012–13 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS),5 DRC 2013–14 DHS,6 Mali 2012–13 DHS,7 UNFPA 2011 State of the World's Midwifery (for Djibouti),8 and Chad 2010 Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey.9

  • b These population figures may be inaccurate estimates for 2 reasons: (1) The catchment populations of regional and districts hospitals often contain the catchment populations of health centers that SAFPAC supports, leading to double-counting. (2) There were changes in the number and type of facilities that SAFPAC supported between 2012 and 2013, when the second phase of programming began, thus leading to changes in the actual population covered.

  • c The CPR for modern methods was documented to be much lower in the Djibouti camps where SAFPAC works (5.1%).10
