Burkina Faso: In-depth analysis of family planning task sharing and self-care policies, and alignment with WHO guidelines

This report presents an in-depth analysis of Burkina Faso’s policies, regulations, and guidelines, based on an extensive document review followed by key informant interviews. The findings are organized by select family planning methods, including voluntary surgical contraception, implants, injectables, and pills. The report also includes a section describing COVID-19’s effect on task sharing and self-care policies. The authors recommend policy and regulatory revisions and actions to further improve the country’s family planning and regulatory environment and scale implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and note that the Burkina Faso experience may serve as evidence when the WHO next updates its task sharing guidance.
