This indicator is linked to Target 3.8 (Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all) because the provision of family planning information and methods to all individuals who want to prevent pregnancy is an important component of achieving universal health coverage.
This indicator is also linked to Target 5.6 (Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences) because meeting the demand for family planning is facilitated by increasing access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, and also improves sexual and reproductive health and the ability to exercise reproductive rights.
