The international effort for family planning involves hundreds of partner organizations: governments, multilateral organizations, civil society organizations, philanthropic foundations, the private sector, and the research and development communities. FP2020’s role is to coordinate the efforts of these many diverse participants, helping to ensure that agendas are aligned, knowledge is shared and new cooperative strategies are pursued.
FP2020’s organizational structure is deliberately light-touch, consisting of only three components: a Reference Group for strategic direction, a small Task Team for day-to-day administration, and four expert Working Groups that provide technical guidance and support.
FP2020 is aligned with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Every Woman Every Child Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, and a commitment to FP2020 is counted as a commitment to Every Woman Every Child.
