2017 Update: Read the commitment summary here.
2015: The government of Nepal pledges to broaden the range of modern contraceptives available and improve method mix at different levels of the health care system. Nepal commits to engage in a range of communications and media activities to raise awareness of family planning among populations with a high unmet need for modern contraception, focusing particularly on adolescents and young people. Nepal will expand service delivery points to increase access to quality family planning information and services and facilitate family planning by strengthening delivery networks. The government pledges to support mobilizing resources from other, non-health sectors. Nepal commits to strengthening the evidence base for effective program implementation through research and innovation.
In July 2016, the Government of Nepal shared an update on progress in achieving its policy, financial and program and service delivery commitments to FP2020.
The government reports performing the following activities in support of its program and service delivery commitment:
DateJuly 11, 2016
The government commits to working with UNFPA to implement Project VNM8P02, which supports the Ministry of Health to effectively implement the National Strategy on Population and Reproductive Health (2011-2020). The project's total official development assistance (ODA) budget for the Ministry of Health for the period of 2011-2016 is USD $7.3 million. The project supports implementing a comprehensive condom program; controlling condom quality; developing a population law and other legal documents on family planning; conducting surveys on the accessibility to family planning services; and administering surveys on barriers faced by ethnic minority populations in accessing family planning services. During the period of 2016-2020, UNFPA commits to continuing its support to Vietnam on family planning and sexual and reproductive health and other issues.
The government will also partner with MSI to promote procurement of and access to long-term and permanent family planning methods for women living in difficult and prioritized areas in the country, including poor and near-poor women and minority women, basing services on the principle of a client's rights to informed choice and conforming to technical criteria as well as the Ministry of Health's requirements. In addition, the program will also support marketing capacity and procurement of contraceptives and diversifying choices of long-term contraceptives, including IUDs and implants.

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) commits to improving the health systems that support and sustain family planning programs because the success of family planning and reproductive health integrated programming is only as strong as the health system that supports it. In addition, MSH pledges to support national, subnational and local leaders to advocate and plan for achieving FP2020 goals by working through MSH’s global, regional and country projects.
MSH pledges to strengthen supply chain systems for family planning commodities and help reduce stock outs by providing tools and technical assistance to ensure contraceptive security.
MSH also commits to using and building upon its performance management approaches and frameworks, such as the Leadership Development Program, to help decision makers use real-time data to implement, track and propel results of high-impact practices in family planning. In addition, MSH pledges to help build leadership skills at all levels of the health system, including governing bodies, service providers, and community health workers, to align support to FP2020 goals, including expanding MSH's YOUTHLEAD program to build the leadership skills of young family planning champions.

Updated - June 3, 2015—Marie Stopes International doubles its 2012 pledge to expand access to contraception to 6 million women and girls who have previously been unable to access it and now commits to reaching 12 million new users of contraception by 2020. This represents 10 percent of FP2020’s overall goal to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. Read more.
July 11, 2012, London—To reach this commitment, MSI will use its range of service-delivery channels to reach 6 million new family planning users; provide another 4 million existing family planning users with greater quality and choice than they currently have from their existing provider; and sustain the provision of family planning choices for the 10 million women who utilized MSI services in 2011.

UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) works to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.
UNFPA will double the proportion of its resources focused on family planning from 25 percent to 40 percent based on current funding levels, bringing new funding of at least US $174 million per year from core and non-core funds. This will include a minimum of US $54 million per year, from 2013-2019, in increased funding for family planning from UNFPA’s core resources.
In August 2015, UNFPA shared an update on progress in achieving its commitments to FP2020.
In the case of UNFPA, tracking how much went specifically into family planning is not easy to do due to the cross-cutting nature of family planning programming vis-à-vis the other areas covered by UNFPA’s mandate. We estimate that the UNFPA expense on family planning was as follows:

IPPF commits to generating support for sexual and reproductive health and rights from regional bodies, the Oil Rich States, the G20, BRICS and emerging economies, advocate to the pharmaceutical industry for affordable pricing for contraceptives and raise awareness and change the attitudes of community, political and public opinion leaders to support sexual and reproductive health and rights for all.
IPPF shared the following update on progress in achieving its FP2020 commitments:
At global, regional and national levels, IPPF persuades governments and decision makers to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights, to change policy and to fund programs and service delivery. In 2014, IPPF made significant progress to improve an enabling environment towards strengthening the recognition of SRHR at the regional level:
Engaging BRICS: More than 42 per cent of the world’s population live in the five BRICS countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, which means that the policies and views of governments in these countries are critical for the health and well-being of billions of people. IPPF works in BRICS countries in partnership with civil society organizations, including Member Associations, to raise awareness among the leaders and policy makers of the importance of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
IPPF continues to advocate for affordable pricing for contraceptives and raise awareness and change the attitudes of community, political and public opinion leaders to support SRHR for all. We introduce new contraceptive methodologies to meet the needs of under-served communities and address the known barriers to voluntary family planning service uptake of vulnerable populations. In 2014, IPPF successfully called for the expansion of high-quality and affordable contraceptives through:
IPPF is the global and regional convener and mobilizer of civil society organizations that advocate for public, political and financial commitments to voluntary family planning. Through our advocacy, we influence and support enabling environments to increase high quality, affordable sexual and reproductive health services and for governments to be accountable for the pledges that they made at the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning. IPPF Member Associations regularly hold their governments to account by ensuring that citizens know their rights, by monitoring and tracking that people’s rights are being delivered, and by supporting constructive engagement among citizens, services and government officials to address barriers and challenges. In 2014:
In 2014, the government of Uganda launched its US$200 million official Family Planning Costed Implementation Plan, 2015–2020 (FP-CIP) to reduce unmet need for contraception from 40 to 10 per cent, and increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate to 50 per cent by 2020. RHU convened and led a youth group and an expert group to provide feedback during the FP-CIP’s development process. Of the 18 countries preparing FP-CIPs, this is the only example of these plans being developed following this approach. RHU’s activities were instrumental in ensuring that young people’s needs and a rights-based approach to family planning programmes were included in the plan. The Association also worked with the government to ensure that the FP-CIP is fully costed, and to raise resources with bilateral donors to fund its various components.
