Abstract

Family planning (FP) is a component of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and refers to the human right of individuals to regulate the number and spacing of births. FP, particularly modern contraceptive methods, is among the most health-promoting and cost-effective public health interventions, with the potential to improve health outcomes by preventing unintended pregnancies as well as maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. Reproductive health is a critical public health issue, and the selected countries differ in their commitments to SRH rights and FP principles, adaptations, implementation, and progress measurement. The selected countries, particularly Malaysia, have made remarkable progress in human and economic development. There are legal and policy frameworks for SRH matters, such as the age of marriage, abortion, and gender-based violence (GBV).
