UPDATE: Recording available for the webinar "Family Planning Advocacy: The Power of Quick Wins"

March 26, 2015

In family planning advocacy, efforts targeted toward specific, critical policy and funding changes can build momentum for a broader long-term goal and keep advocates engaged and focused. Speakers from the Health Policy Plus (HP+) and Advance Family Planning (AFP) Initiative will share successes and lessons learned with this "quick wins" approach, as it is termed under AFP. Specific examples will be highlighted from Francophone West Africa and Malawi, among other settings. Participants will complete this interactive webinar with a deeper understanding of how to identify and achieve a quick win in their own family planning advocacy.
