Family planning (FP) improves the health, wealth, and lives of women, men and children and is defined as the planning of pregnancies by couples and individuals to achieve reproductive intentions in a timely manner. It is more than the avoidance of pregnancies and births; it also includes conceptional care to achieve pregnancies, particularly in the face of reproductive barriers. Family Planning Repositioning means increasing awareness, relevance and use of contraceptive information and services through related reproductive health and development policies and programs currently operating in a country. With unmet need for family planning increasing, it is up to African leaders to show their support in providing women and men reproductive choices by embracing and invigorating the family planning field.
