We work in Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands, Cook Islands, Samoa, Tonga, and Tuvalu.

Family Planning NSW provides reproductive and sexual health services and training in the Pacific, where we are known as Family Planning Australia. The Pacific has some of the worst reproductive and sexual health indicators globally, with high rates of maternal and infant mortality, unintended and teenage pregnancies, sexual violence and unacceptably high rates of cervical cancer deaths.

Family Planning Australia builds partnerships with family planning organisations at national and international levels, and with local NGOs and government health services to improve access to comprehensive reproductive and sexual health services with funding from Australian Aid, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and private donors.

All of our international projects closely align with achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and in particular:
Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 5:    Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Sustainable Development Goal number 3 - Good Health and Well-beingSustainable Development Goals number 4 - Quality EducationSustainable Development Goals number 5 - Gender Equality

Our approach is to develop collaborative partnerships at local, national and international levels. We are committed to long term capacity building with government and non-government organisations to address reproductive and sexual health needs of the community. We achieve this by providing best practice services, enhancing the knowledge and skills of service providers, improving the body of knowledge about reproductive and sexual health through rigorous research and evaluation, and leading international development projects to promote the rights of marginalised people in developing countries.
