The political economy analysis of population and family planning in Pakistan sought to identify
reasons why the practice of contraception has stalled in Pakistan in recent years, leading to rapid rates of population growth that have alarmed the nation’s leaders. The Council of Common Interest (CCI) endorsed the formation of national and provincial task forces to pursue the aim of lowering population growth rates and providing effective family planning services.
