Egypt is located on the northeast corner of the African continent. It is bordered by Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, the Red Sea to the east, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. Egypt has the largest, most densely settled population among the Arab countries. The total area of the country covers approximately one million square kilometers. However, much of the land is desert, and only 7.7 percent of Egypt’s area is inhabited. The Egyptian government has a policy of land reclamation and fostering of new settlements in the desert. Despite these efforts, the majority of Egyptians live either in the Nile Delta located in the north of the country or in the narrow Nile Valley south of Cairo.

There is evidence that the MDGs will not be achieved unless there is universal access to quality reproductive health services especially FP. Each country should address the different challenges to FP programs especially those related to unmet needs, discontinuation, and method mix to support the MDGs related to reducing maternal morbidity and mortality. In Egypt, the contraceptive coverage rate had shown a decrease from 53.4% in 2007 to 45% in 2011.
