Note: FP2020 uses a rolling baselines so values are recalculated each year based on the newset available data.
India’s FP2020 goals aim to drive access, choice, and quality of family planning services. Since first making an FP2020 commitment in 2012, India has continued its efforts to expand the range and reach of contraceptive options through rolling out new contraceptives and delivering a full range of family planning services at all levels. India has integrated family planning into the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A) Strategy. The Government of India has enhanced its supply chain system through rolling out Family Planning Logistics Management Information System (FP-LMIS). Increasing awareness and generating demand for family planning services through comprehensive media campaigns have been priorities. The Government of India has increased domestic investment for family planning. At the 2012 Summit, India committed to spend USD$2 billion by 2020 for family planning program and, in July 2017, India renewed its commitment to invest USD$3 billion by 2020.
India FP2020 Commitment
India will include family planning as a central element of its efforts to achieve Universal Health Coverage. Through the largest public health programme in the world, the National Rural Health Mission and the upcoming National Urban Health Mission, addressing equity, ensuring quality, including adolescents and integration into the continuum of care are slated to be the cornerstones of the new strategy. The centre-piece of its strategy on family planning will be a shift from limiting to spacing methods, and an expansion of choice of methods, especially IUDs (Intrauterine devices). To enable women to delay and space their births, India will distribute contraceptives at the community level through 860,000 community health workers, train 200,000 health workers to provide IUDs, and shall substantially augment counselling services for women after childbirth. Expenditure on Family Planning alone out of the total Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A) bouquet is expected to cross US $2 billion from 2012 to 2020. This will ensure free services and commodities through public health facilities for 200 million couples of reproductive age group and adolescents seeking contraceptive services.
