From our Partners: “‘Rights in Action’ Blog Series Launches to Commemorate Third Anniversary of the London Summit on Family Planning,” FP2020

July 11 marks the third anniversary of the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning and the creation of Family Planning 2020 (FP2020). To commemorate this milestone, FP2020 is launching a blog series on Monday, July 13, to celebrate the longstanding work and dedication of our global partners in upholding the principles of rights and empowerment in family planning.

Progress is not just about whether we reach our shared goals–it’s about how we reach them. Progress is about raising our collective voices to ensure that the health, rights and dignity of women and girls—including the ability to decide if and when to start a family—are central to the conversation.

The 10-day blog series, penned by a variety of commitment-makers and global partners, will highlight each of the 10 FP2020 Rights and Empowerment Principles for Family Planning. The series brings to life how some of our partners have implemented these rights-based principles in their work around the world, and what rights-based approaches look like in practice.

Our goals are to generate a global conversation on the implementation of rights-based programs, encourage the family planning community to share their successes and best practices, and demonstrate the importance of rights and empowerment in driving family planning progress.
