We all have a role to play in advocacy and accountability!

Advocacy and accountability (A&A) play a critical role increasing access to and use of quality family planning services and supplies using evidence and best practices. A&A takes many forms and occurs at all levels – from influencing global platforms like the SDGS and FP2030 and holding countries accountable to their commitments to demanding reform at the local level and ensuring decision makers hear from the people impacted by their actions.

Engaging in advocacy and accountability can speed up and improve the pace, scope, and quality of change to address the ongoing challenges in family planning and ensure that words translate into meaningful action. With so many challenges and opportunities facing the global family planning community, we all have a role to play in advocacy and accountability!

About the ICFP Advocacy & Accountability Subcommittee

Initiate and coordinate efforts to highlight the role of advocacy and accountability at the global, regional, national and sub-national levels

The ICFP Advocacy & Accountability (A&A) subcommittee was formed in 2015. At the 2016 ICFP in Bali, A&A was featured as a spotlighted conference track for the first time in the conference’s history. Since then, recognizing that A&A is essential to the success of efforts throughout the family planning and SRHR community, it has since been integrated into all conference tracks.

The aim of the Advocacy & Accountability subcommittee is to initiate and coordinate efforts to highlight the role of advocacy and accountability at the global, regional, national and sub-national levels to ensure access to voluntary, quality family planning information, services and supplies in the context of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Meet the Family Planning News Network

The Family Planning News Network fills a niche void in the global health community – ongoing digital media advocacy and influencer content creation focused on family planning and gender equity issues – through the International Conference on Family Planning platform (ICFP). As ICFP has transformed from a biannual conference to a dynamic movement, platform, and community, FPNN has emerged as its sister platform for digital media, media advocacy, youth capacity strengthening, and media fellowships in the FP community.
