Ending Unmet Need for Family Planning: Reproductive Rights and Contraceptive Choices

Today, more women have access to family planning information and services than ever before.

What will it take to reach marginalized communities and those living in fragile and humanitarian settings? And who is going to pay for it? This signature session will explore the path forwards – engaging across sectors – to expand rights, agency and contraceptive choices to ensure that everyone everywhere can prosper as equal partners in sustainable development.
