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 many children they want to have.
FP2020 have launched a new web resource dedicated to rights-based family planning—an approach to developing and implementing programs that aims to fulfill the rights of all individuals to:
  • Choose whether, when, and how many children to have;
  • Act on those choices through high-quality sexual and reproductive health services, information, and education; and
  • Access those services free from discrimination, coercion, and violence.
The pursuit of this demands that that policies, plans, and programs are designed and implemented to respect, protect, and fulfill the rights of girls and women and are grounded in human rights principles, as outlined in FP2020’s Rights and Empowerment Principles for Family Planning.
Family Planning 2020 is proud to launch this new resource to strengthen the critical knowledge base on rights-based family planning and to support those working to operationalize this approach and measure how it impacts programs, progress, and people’s lives.
