[Editorial] Family planning: accelerating the way ahead

The latest figures and progress of the Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) global partnership were released in its annual report on Dec 5. FP2020 The Way Ahead, together with a related research paper by Niamh Cahill and colleagues published online in The Lancet, paint a mixed picture. By July, 2017, more than 309 million women and girls of reproductive age in the 69 FP2020 focus (the world’s poorest) countries are using modern methods of contraception. That figure is 38·8 million more than at the start of the FP2020 initiative in 2012.
