Bloomberg School receives $28 million for family planning advocacy
Date:12/20/2012

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has received $28 million in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to continue and expand the Advance Family Planning advocacy initiative within the Bloomberg School's Bill & Melinda Gates Institute on Population and Reproductive Health.

Advance Family Planning aims to increase resources and political commitment for quality family planning programs, as part of the July 2012 London Summit on Family Planning (now known as FP2020).

The initiative will focus on nine countries: India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Senegal, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.

"Leaders around the world increasingly recognize how important family planning is to health, development and human rights. Combined with the committed leadership of Melinda Gates and [UK Prime Minister] David Cameron who spearheaded FP2020, we have the potential to radically transform the lives and wellbeing of women and families. Advance Family Planning has demonstrated that effective, collaborative advocacy is at the heart of realizing that potential," said Duff Gillespie, PhD, principal investigator and a professor with the Bloomberg School's Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health. "We are grateful for the support of all three foundations and those leaders who have
