The DFID 'Delivering Accelerated Family Planning in Pakistan (DAFPAK) : Lot 2 Public Sector Service Delivery' is a part of the DAFPAK programme.

The 4-year programme aims to increase access to family planning services; and improve quality of client-centred services such that more women, including adolescents are able to safely plan their pregnancies and improve their sexual reproductive health.

The expected outcome for the programme is 11.9 million CYPs generated by expanded access to FP services; 55,000 additional users of family planning and an increase in modern CPR from 26.1 at the baseline to 33.9.

Palladium and its consortium partners will strengthen the quality of service provision in the public sector (across 30+ districts in three provinces Punjab, Sindh and KPK) by :
