Strategy 2016-2020

Our Progress

The FP2020 partnership now includes more than 80 commitment makers—including nearly 40 countries—reflecting a marked increase in political will among governments as well as growing interest across diverse sectors. 

During our initial phase, FP2020’s unique governance model enabled representatives from all sectors to coordinate activities, pool talents, align agendas, and collaborate to address the policy, financing, supply, delivery, and sociocultural barriers to women accessing contraceptives.

This tremendous commitment has underpinned FP2020's momentum. 

However, with an estimated gap of 10 million users, FP2020 recognized that we needed to make changes now—both in our structure and in our prioritization—in order to deliver on the ambitious agenda that the global community has committed to achieve.

We had to learn from what has and hasn’t worked and, based on a combination of experience and data, make the necessary changes to accelerate progress. Read more. 

The Next Phase of FP2020: Our Vision for the Future

A Closer Look at FP2020's New Crosscutting Initiatives

Our response to this challenge and this moment is a new strategy for 2016-2020 that prioritizes our efforts on four crosscutting initiatives: country support; data and performance management; global advocacy, rights, and youth; and knowledge and evidence. These initiatives, and the activities that fall within each, are where we believe FP2020 can add the most value through collaboration and mutual accountability. Across this portfolio of initiatives, our main emphasis will be on supporting and reinforcing country-level activities—building on our existing focal point network and in-country partnerships—that can dramatically increase access to high-quality family planning information, services, and supplies. 

Working With Our Partners

As we reorient and focus our efforts, we’re also redefining how we will work with our partners. FP2020 can only succeed in delivering results by supporting and magnifying the efforts of global and country-level partners, playing the roles of convener and facilitator, and focusing on catalytic actions directly linked to FP2020 goals.

With tremendous input from the global community, the Secretariat has identified new approaches to more efficiently and effectively leverage technical partnerships and experts at the country and global levels. The Secretariat is moving forward to establish an Expert Advisory Community (EAC) that can mobilize international expertise and technical assistance across a range of issues, including supply, demand, and right-based programming, among others.

Given that measurement and data use are core to our work, the Performance Monitoring and Evidence Working Group will continue to play a key role, but the EAC will replace the other three Working Groups. The Reference Group will continue to provide leadership and oversight across our efforts, maintaining its system of rotating membership to ensure diverse representation and staggered terms for continuity.

FP2020 has thrived because of incredible stakeholder interest and participation—as we move forward we will continue to maintain open pathways for collaboration, discussion, and engagement. By working together to close the shortfall and reach 120 million more women and girls with voluntary, rights-based family planning by 2020, we can achieve a critical milestone on our path to fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals and, ultimately, to universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
