Family Planning Summit


DFID to monitor commitments

25 JULY 2012 - The London Summit on Family Planning delivered a historic global breakthrough giving access to family planning to 120 million girls and women in some of the world’s poorest countries by 2020. Achieving this over the next 8 years will prevent the deaths of more than 200,000 women in pregnancy and childbirth and 3 million infants.

Keeping our promise

In order to hold ourselves and the global community accountable for reaching this goal, an independent Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) accountability reference group will work to make sure we deliver our promises. This will involve a champions group to provide leadership at the highest level, mobilising additional commitments and maintaining political momentum. The group will be supported by a FP2020 task team which will have day-to-day responsibility for overseeing progress towards the summit's goals.

Commitments made at the summit will be published in an outcome document and added to the UN Secretary General’s ‘Every Woman Every Child’ website.
