Family Planning 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, multilateral organizations, donors, the private sector and the research and development community to enable 120 million additional women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. FP2020 is an outcome of the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning and is based on the principle that all women, no matter where they live, should have access to lifesaving contraceptives. Achieving the FP2020 goal is a critical milestone to ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services by 2030, as laid out in Sustainable Development Goal 3. FP2020 is in support of the UN Secretary-General’s Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.

As a unique collaborative platform, FP2020 sits at the nexus of global, regional, and national efforts to expand family planning. Our partners include multilateral development agencies, donor governments and private philanthropists, implementing partners, civil society stakeholders, and dozens of countries that are committed to improving access to family planning. Together we foster a culture of dialogue, innovation, and accountability that spans sectors and bridges geographical divides.

FP2020’s strategy for 2016-2020 prioritizes efforts on four crosscutting initiatives:

  • Country support
  • Data and performance management
  • Global advocacy, rights, and youth
  • Knowledge and evidence.
These initiatives, and the activities that fall within each, are where we believe FP2020 adds the most value through collaboration and mutual accountability. Across this portfolio of initiatives, our main emphasis is on supporting and reinforcing country-level activities—building on our existing focal point network and in-country partnerships—that can dramatically increase access to high-quality family planning information, services, and supplies.

FP2020’s focus countries are the 69 poorest countries in the developing world by region and sub region (with 2010 per-capita gross national income less than or equal to US$2,500). View the focus countries here:
