Family Planning Summit: Summary of UK Commitments

We have made significant progress since the UK hosted the first London summit on family planning. Five years later, we are still leading global action as a long standing supporter of rights-based, voluntary family planning as a pillar of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights.


Summary of UK Commitments


In 2012 the UK committed to spend an average of £180m a year on family planning (FP) to 2020. As a result we have so far supported 8.5 million more women to use voluntary modern contraception. The UK will again rise to the challenge and spend an average of £225m every year for the next five years. This predictability will allow the long term planning that our partners need to reach those still left behind.
