However, they have often been left behind in the HIV response, probably because of the lack of reliable epidemiolog...

(1) In 2013, an estimated 40% of pregnancies in Cameroon were unintended. (2) More than six in 10 women who want to avoid pregnancy either do not practice contraception or use a relatively ineffective traditional method. These women can be said to have an unmet need for modern contraception. (3) Meeting just half of this unmet need would prevent 18...
