FP2020 Reference Group Launched To Advance Family Planning Commitments Made At London Summit

Eighteen leaders from civil society, governments, multi-lateral organizations, technical institutions and foundations are participating on the “Reference Group” for Family Planning 2020 (FP2020). The partnership was a key outcome of the London Summit on Family Planning convened by the UK Department for International Development and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and in support of Every Woman Every Child on July 11, 2012. The FP2020 Reference Group will be responsible for providing strategic direction and coordination between partners as well as with existing structures and programs to improve women’s access to voluntary family planning and contraceptives. A website is forthcoming. In the meantime, to receive ongoing communication about FP2020, please send an email to info@familyplanning2020.org.
