This study examined the effect of the Riziki Demonstration Project on contraceptive service provision and identified drivers of the intervention’s success in increasing public sector contraceptive uptake. Findings demonstrate the potential for task sharing combined with community engagement efforts to improve contraceptive awareness, knowledge and supply. Community engagement should include men, traditional leaders and other influencers to strengthen norms that position family planning in alignment with community values.
