The South African Health Review (SAHR) has been published by Health Systems Trust (HST) since 1995. Since 2014, it has been internationally recognized as a peer-reviewed journal. According to HST, the Review is considered to be a critical resource for understanding, from a South African perspective, local and international public health issues. In the 2016 edition of the Review, HE2RO Senior Researcher, Naomi Lince-Deroche, collaborated with South African academics and the National Department of Health to provide a comprehensive overview of the potential for South Africa to achieve universal access to sexual and reproductive health services under the Sustainable Development Goals. The chapter focuses specifically on contraceptive services and uses the recent roll out of the contraceptive implant to highlight the country’s strengths and areas requiring attention.
