New Web Resource: Rights-Based Family Planning
Rights-based family planning is 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; to act on those choices through high-quality sexual and reproductive health services, information, and education; and to access those services free from discrimination, coercion, and violence.
Over the last several years, global and country actors are increasingly interrogating programs and practices to ensure the rights of clients are considered and respected. Now, these efforts—in pursuit of the promise of rights-based family planning programming as a standard practice—are leading to the first insights on what it takes to operationalize this approach and measure its impact on programs, progress, and people.
Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) is proud to support these efforts by helping build the critical knowledge base on rights-based family planning—sharing the latest research, program efforts, and tools as well as providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, observations, and inspiration.
