Bridging the gap to FP2020: Evidence to accelerate progress toward meeting the need for family planning

10 July 2017

To coincide with the 2017 Family Planning Summit, the School, the Population Council, and Marie Stopes International is hosting a research symposium.

The symposium is in collaboration with the DFID-funded Research Programme consortium Strengthening Evidence for Programming for Unintended Pregnancy (STEP UP) and the Maternal Healthcare Markets Evaluation Team (MET).

The research symposium will:

  • Share the latest evidence on unmet need for family planning,
  • Review evidenced-informed programming for addressing unmet need for family planning,
  • Discuss a research agenda aligned to the global architecture for family planning.

Join academics, implementers, donors, governments, and civil society for invigorating presentations and discussions on the state of evidence, programme innovation, and the research agenda to bridge the gap to FP2020.
