Concerted Global Effort Critical To Achieving FP2020 Goals

The Lancet: FP2020: accelerating progress in access to family planning
Editorial Board

“The Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) global partnership, launched at the London Summit on Family Planning in 2012, set a goal of enabling 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020, with a focus on 69 of the world’s poorest countries. On Nov. 1, FP2020 released the partnership’s annual report, FP2020 Momentum at the Midpoint 2015-2016, which details progress toward this ambitious goal, as well as barriers to meeting the target. … FP2020 remains off track to meet the 2020 goal, with 19 million fewer uses than hoped for in 2016. … [R]eaching the goal of 120 million additional women and girls will take concerted efforts from communities, health-care providers, and governments” (11/5).
