Users vs Costs

Consumption cost is a function of differences in the method mix and the costs of that mix. India, for example, accounts for 30% of users across the 135 LMICs but makes up only 7% of total consumption costs. And while lower-middle-income countries are home to most users, two-thirds of global consumption costs come upper middle-income countries, which only account for 30% of users.

These differences in cost depend on variations in method mix―on the quantities of supplies a user must consume each year; on the cost of the method itself; and on the sector where the method is obtained.

By understanding the relationship between users and costs, we can better ensure women are able to access a full range of contraceptive methods.
