FHI 360 - Policy & Political

DateOctober 31, 2016

Updated - October 2016: FHI 360 renews its commitment to expand the evidence base for family planning programming and the translation of evidence into policy and practice. In response to a lack of knowledge about the association between hormonal contraception and HIV acquisition, FHI 360 will provide evidence to support contraceptive decision-making for women at risk of HIV infection who also wish to avoid pregnancy.  FHI 360 continues its commitment to make family planning more accessible through task-shifting, by conducting research and advocacy for policy change. FHI 360 will continue to work with government stakeholders in FP2020 countries to develop, implement, and monitor costed implementation plans for family planning. In addition, FHI 360 will advocate for the inclusion of family planning as an essential part of an integrated approach to development; when women and girls are able to plan the size of their families and time their pregnancies, we make progress on nearly every Sustainable Development Goal. 

July 11, 2012: FHI 360 will expand the evidence base for safe and effective family planning and will translate high-quality evidence into policy and practice.
