Hoping For Universal Family Planning By 2030

Dana Horvig, CEO of Marie Stopes International, writes in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog that his hope is “that by 2030 we are finally living in the golden age of family planning … in which everyone has access to whatever type of contraception they want, no matter where they live or what their circumstances are.” He continues, “If we are to reach this golden age though, we must keep an ever watchful eye on results and impact, and make sure family planning services are available to the people who need them most.” He discusses Marie Stopes International’s efforts to provide family planning services to people worldwide, noting, “By 2020 in fact, Marie Stopes International will have enabled more than 20 million women in the poorest countries to use contraception.” He concludes, “Universal family planning by 2030 is possible, let’s make it happen” (2/5).
