Women, family planning summit mobilized an unprecedented $2.6 billion

According to Richard Kollodge, the Editor of the report launched on Wednesday, there are many barriers to accessing family planning, not only in developing countries, but throughout the world.

Mr. Kollodge says that new statistics that came out earlier this year show that 222 million women in developing countries would like to use family planning but have no access to it.

“So that’s one of the reasons why UNFPA has focused on family planning for this year’s report. Another big reason is that the international community, in this case led by UNFPA, the government of the United Kingdom and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation organized a family planning summit in July that mobilized an unprecedented $2.6 billion to make family planning available to an additional 120 million women in developing countries by the year 2020.”
