From June 8–11, 2015, in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a global, action-oriented meeting,  titled Accelerating Access to Postpartum Family Planning in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia (the “PPFP Global Meeting”), was held with delegations from select countries and key international stakeholders to accelerate access to postpartum family planning (PPFP) in these regions. This multilateral effort aimed to fast-track country progress toward FP2020's goal by reaching postpartum women, whose family planning needs are frequently overlooked.

Continued engagement with country delegations through follow-on activities, such as an assessment of progress towards the action steps identified at the Global PPFP Meeting, will take place before, during and after the Global Maternal and Newborn Health Conference in Mexico City (October 2015) and the International Conference on Family Planning in Indonesia (November 2015).
