The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda recognizes the transformative benefits of voluntary family planning—for people, the planet, and prosperity. When women and couples can exercise their right to freely decide whether, when, and how many children they want to have, the whole world benefits. Universal access to family planning contributes to broader development goals, including women’s and girls’ empowerment, gender equality, poverty reduction, and environmental sustainability. And, as demonstrated by E2A’s work across Africa to define, refine, apply, and scale up family planning best practices, we have learned how to focus family planning resources to have the greatest impact.
E2A seized opportunities to broaden the impact of family planning by creating synergistic and mutually beneficial partnerships across sectors, closing evidence gaps, addressing emerging health threats, and engaging stakeholders who are often left behind.
