Survey to Inform the Development of a Collective Vision for Family Planning Post-2020

In 2012, global leaders launched an ambitious partnership to ensure more women and girls in the world’s lowest income countries could use modern contraception to help realize their right to determine if, when, and how often they have children. Now, the time has come to take stock of what we’ve learned and re-imagine how to accelerate progress for the next decade. We’ve made impressive strides to date, and it is critical that we not lose momentum or a keen focus on the millions of women and girls who want to access a wide range of contraceptives.

FP2020 A Closer Look at Postpartum Family Planning Data and Advocacy

The purpose of the series of opportunity briefs developed by Track20 are to aid in prioritisation. There are multiple interventions that countries may invest in but choosing the right interventions starts with the data.
