Family Planning Australia
Women and child

Family Planning Australia has been working in Fiji since 2008. Our projects have included reproductive healthcare education, cervical cancer screening and treatment, developing family planning guidelines and promoting reproductive sexual health and rights in special education schools for those living with a disability.

Family Planning Australia aims to continue our successful partnership with the Reproductive and Family Health Association of Fiji and to help increase capacity in-country to provide family planning information, education and clinical services.

"It made me understand that even though these children have special needs, they have a right to know about the good touch and bad touch because they can be misused at any time."
