Promoting and providing postpartum family planning (PPFP) is a high-impact family planning practice, as it reduces mistimed and closely spaced pregnancies through first 12 months following childbirth. Research has shown that more than 90% of women want to either delay or avoid future pregnancies during firstyear
postpartum. Closely-spaced pregnancies within first year postpartum pose greatest risk for mother and baby resulting in increased risks for adverse outcomes such as preterm births and LBW in subsequent pregnancies. In Kenya, a study reported an overall post-partum unmet need of 46%. Baringo County had
3.3% of postpartum women receiving family planning in 2018.
