2012 was a landmark year for family planning. An unprecedented series of national and global pledges were made at the London Summit on Family Planning by donors and developing countries to expand access to a further 120 million women across the developing world by 202. $2.6 billion was committed by donors, and over 20 developing countries made bold promises to address policy, financing and delivery barriers that prevent women from accessing their choice of contraception.
This work has the potential to transform the lives of millions of families around the world, and collectively is referred to as Family Planning 2020 (FP2020).
Our FP2020 pledge
We will have an important role to play in this work. We pledge that, by 2020, 20 million women will be using contraception provided by us – doubling the number of users we had in 2011. Six million of these women will be additional users of family planning, which alone represents five percent of the total FP2020 pledge. We have already gone a long way to achieving this. In 2012, 13.6 million women and couples were using contraceptives supplied by Marie Stopes International.
To reach these women, and achieve these significant impacts, we need to understand who our potential clients are, what their needs are, and what tools and approaches work best to deliver modern family planning choice and services to them.
