The link between population growth or fertility rates and socio-economic development is unquestionable, hence, the increasing call for more investment in family planning programs and research. Zambia is a country in Sub-Sahara Africa with one of the highest fertility rates in the world, high unmet need for modern contraceptives, high rate of teenage pregnancy, high HIV/AIDS prevalence rate, high occurrence of early marriages and a predominantly young population.
