Family Planning 2020 (FP 2020)

A global momentum on the issue of access to contraceptives and has spurred collaboration, innovation, and greater accountability in family planning efforts.

Family Planning 2020 (FP 2020)

Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) is a global partnership that supports the rights of women and girls to decide, freely, and for themselves, whether, when, and how many children they want to have. FP2020 works with governments, civil society, multi-lateral organizations, donors, the private sector, and the research and development community to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. FP2020 is an outcome of the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning where more than 20 governments made commitments to address the policy, financing, delivery and socio-cultural barriers to women accessing contraceptive information, services and supplies. Donors also pledged an additional US$2.6 billion in funding.

Led by an 18-member Reference Group, guided technically by Working Groups, operated daily by a Secretariat and hosted by the United Nations Foundation, FP2020 is based on the principle that all women, no matter where they live should have access to lifesaving contraceptives. FP2020 is in support of the UN Secretary-General’s global effort for women and children’s health, Every Woman Every Child.

To advance family planning, FP2020 will:

  • Track progress and report on financial and policy commitments made at the Summit, linking with established accountability processes for the UN Secretary General's Every Woman Every Child strategy;
  • Monitor and report on global and country progress toward the FP2020 Summit goals;
  • Identify obstacles and barriers to achieving Summit goals and recommend solutions;
  • Ensure promotion of voluntary family planning and concrete measures to prevent coercion and discrimination, and ensure respect for human rights;
  • Ensure data availability to support all of the above, consistent with country processes and sharing data, such as through a global score card; and
  • Publish an annual report to update the global community on progress and challenges.
