This study was done to determine the extent to which Community Based Distribution (CBD) reaches the poor compared with health facilities. It found that contraceptive prevalence rate in the CBD area was 32 per cent, more than double the national figures for rural areas. People from all wealth categories had equal access to contraceptive services from CBD agents. It is therefore likely that the presence of CBD agents increases the access of the poor to family planning services. Interestingly, adolescents, men, and Catholics were more likely to use CBD services to access contraceptives, than older women and people from other religions
