Abstract: This article explores knowledge and factors associated with modern contraceptive use among young women in five West African countries- Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Niger, and Nigeria. The article utilized the most recent Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 survey (PMA2020) datasets in the five countries. Knowledge about contraception shows that more than 37% of young women have high knowledge of modern contraception. About 44% in Burkina Faso, 52% in Cote d'Ivoire, 42% in Ghana, 37% in Niger, and 45% in Nigeria have high knowledge of modern contraception. More than 8% of young women in the five countries were using contraceptives. Among young women, about 17% in Burkina Faso, 21% in Cote d'Ivoire, 18% in Ghana, 12% in Niger, and 9% in Nigeria were using modern contraceptives. Factors associated with young women contraceptive use across the five countries include age, marital status, age at first sex, visited by health workers about family planning, exposure to family planning information on television, and knowledge of modern contraceptive. The most statistically significant variables (p<.05) in predicting modern contraceptive use among young women include age at first sex, knowledge of modern contraception, and level of education. The study concluded that exposure to family planning, level of education, and knowledge of modern contraception are significant factors associated with modern contraceptive use among young women.
