In 2015, eight countries reported data for Core Indicators 11a and b (Estimate Table 11), the percentage of facilities at different levels (primary, secondary, or tertiary) that have a minimum range of modern methods in stock for clients on any given day. This is twice as many countries as reported data last year, with UNFPA Supplies surveys providing information on this for the first time.
The results show that in none of the countries with data were at least three methods in stock at the surveyed primary level facilities at the time of the survey. Kenya (94%) and Côte d'Ivoire (92%) were the two countries with the highest percentage of primary facilities where at least three modern methods were available. Secondary and higher-level facilities show a wide range in method availability, with two countries, Togo and Burkina Faso, reporting 100% of such facilities having five or more modern methods in stock on the day of the survey.
21. Stock-outs of permanent methods, including male and female sterilization, refer to the supplies needed to perform these procedures.
22. UNFPA facility surveys are nationally representative and include both public and private sector. PMA2020 surveys are limited to the facilities monitored in the sampling area for household surveys, which is selected to be nationally representative. Routine systems in Zimbabwe and Bangladesh capture information only on the public sector, while routine systems in Nepal and Kenya also capture part of the private sector.
