The rate of modern contraceptive prevalence in Mali (10%) is among the lowest in the world and unmet need is 29% in the Sikasso region. In 2012, only 3.4% of women 15-49 used the long-term methods. The postpartum IUD is considered as a method used. The low usage is due to rumors about the IUD, socio-cultural barriers and the lack of target information, especially during pregnancy.
