This study reports that there has been an incremental increase in the utilization of maternal health services and use of contraceptive methods and there are reductions in the unmet need for family planning and a substantial decline in the fertility rate of young women and men ages 15-24. However, there has been no significant decrease in either domestic spousal violence or adolescent marriage.  Inequities based on provinces and ethnicity have been reported.
