Core Indicators 13 and 17
Core Indicator 13, couple-years of protection (CYPs) and Core Indicator 17, adolescent birth rate (ABR), are not featured in the report this year but are included in the Estimate Tables. CYPs are calculated from routine data collected through Health Management Information Systems, and represent the work being done in-country to collect routine data and use this data to monitor program progress.
In addition, the data used to calculate CYPs was also used in 11 countries to inform current mCPR estimates (Core Indicator 2). The adolescent birth rate is of particular interest in countries with adolescent reproductive health interventions designed to reduce unintended pregnancy. This survey-based measure does not change much from year to year and so has not been highlighted in the report.
