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 children they want to have. FP2020 works with governments, civil society, multilateral institutions, donors, the private sector, and the research and development communities 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 and girls, 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 and rights, as laid out in Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 5. The FP2020 Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Foundation.
