Since 1968, at least 38 global statements, calls for action and vows calling for increased access to family planning have been issued. The purpose of the Kampala 2009: Reaffirmation to Global Family Planning Commitments is to highlight these past statements with the intention of recommitting international and national leaders to working for universal access to family planning. 

We, the conferees of the International Conference on Family Planning,

  • Having met in Kampala from November 15-18, 2009 to review research findings and program progress, and
  • Recognizing that commitments to family planning have been made through no fewer than the following global conventions, consensus statements, and strategies up to now,
  • Re-affirm and proclaim it imperative to fulfill all commitments to universal access to family planning
  • Urge all leaders, peoples, governments and other institutions to dedicate the necessary effort to protect the basic human right of individuals to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of their children.
