Family planning in Indonesia is deemed as a strategic program to improve the quality of life for women. In reality, this program's development is influenced by social values and policy priorities in every region. Many studies have investigated the use of modern contraceptives in Indonesia, none of which presents the disparities in contraceptive use among regions. We conducted a descriptive and inferential analysis using secondary data from Government Performance and Accountability Survey (GPAS) 2019. This study determines the disparities in the use of modern contraceptives among married women between regions in Indonesia. Regional 1, as a pioneer of family planning program in Indonesia since 1969, has a higher modern contraceptive use prevalence (mCPR) than the national and other regions. Besides, the lowest mCPR is Regional 3 as the youngest of the program implementation. The three regions have diverse determinant factors of modern contraceptive use. This paper discusses the importance of considering the regional complexions to implement Indonesia's family planning program, especially modern contraceptives.
