Indonesia’s family planning program has undergone several transformations in its seventy-year history. By the start of the 21st century, the program—historically one of the strongest in the world—had stagnated and progress slowed. A decade of strategic advocacy has since re-energized the family planning community, enabling collaboration across government and civil society to leverage multi-sector investment, capitalize on policy change, and improve access to quality information, services, and supplies. A key catalyst: the Advance Family Planning (AFP) initiative.
Read this end-of-project report on the AFP initiative’s successes and lessons learned in partnership with the government and local partners Yayasan Cipta and the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs Indonesia.
At every level—from village heads to district mayors, provincial governors to national ministers—the AFP initiative has shown that advocacy can help leaders act on their promises and better meet the needs of their constituents.
