As part of its Family Planning (FP) 2020 targets, the Government of Afghanistan has committed to increasing the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (CPR) by 30 percent and reducing the unmet need for family planning by 10 percent.

In order to mobilize and rally political commitment and leadership as well as coordinate with all partners, the government – in collaboration with UNFPA, WHO, USAID and other stakeholders – organized a one-day national summit on family planning on 2 February 2019 in Kabul.

The summit was aimed at enabling focused investments for increased access to scaled-up quality family planning services in Afghanistan. It enhanced awareness on FP and renewed the commitment of all relevant government ministries, donors, UN agencies and development partners to support human rights-based family planning services in Afghanistan.
