Family planning programs must strive to achieve an optimal mix of contraceptive options that meet couples' needs across the reproductive life span and that also link initial contraceptive choices to continuation of use. Two recent studies address the factors that have the most influence on contraceptive continuation rates and the ways in which an understanding of these factors can be used to plan and achieve and optimal contraceptive mix for a population.
