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.
The FP2020 Secretariat is structured to support, strengthen and accelerate country-led programs and priorities. Under the direction of the Country Support Director, the Manager, Anglophone Africa Region will play a key role executing against FP2020’s strategic approach for engagement with Anglophone Africa countries, including current and potential commitment-making countries. This approach supports coordination and problem solving at the country/regional level, with the overarching goal to enhance the ability of women and girls to access and use family planning information and services in line with country-identified priorities. The Anglophone Africa Regional Manager reports to the Country Support Director and will supervise the Anglophone Africa Regional Associate.
