Executive Summary

See original/source content:

All women and girls have the right, and must have the means, to decide freely and for themselves whether and when to have children. Access to voluntary family planning leads to transformational benefits across the development spectrum, and is one of the smartest investments a country can make in its future. At the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, leaders from around the world committed to expanding contraceptive access to an additional 120 million women and girls in the world’s 69 poorest countries by the year 2020. Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) is the movement that carries this global effort forward.

In the two years since the London Summit, FP2020 has made remarkable progress. The first year was a period of formation; the second has been one of growing momentum and measurable results. In this second annual progress report we document the advances made over the past year, including additional commitments from countries, increased disbursements from donors, and progress across multiple sectors. The measurement systems established to track progress are now yielding the first set of annual results.
