Support Us

Family Planning NSW (FPNSW) is the leading organisation for reproductive and sexual health in New South Wales, Australia and the Pacific. Our mission is to enhance the reproductive and sexual health and rights of our communities by supporting all people to have control over and decide freely on all matters related to their reproductive and sexual health throughout their lives.

The Pacific has some of the lowest reproductive and sexual health outcomes globally, but is often forgotten in the global development landscape. As Australia’s closest neighbours, FPNSW, which trades under Family Planning Australia internationally, has the capacity to support and make a difference for Pacific Island communities.

Where do we work?

Through our international development programme, each year we reach over 14,000 people across ten countries in the Pacific (Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Kiribati, and Cook Islands). Our projects train clinicians and provide information and education to communities on sexual and reproductive health services including contraception and cervical cancer screening. We also work with governments and local organisations to ensure these services are disability, youth and gender friendly. 

Why is it important?

Sexual and reproductive health programmes are proven to provide the skills and information required to make informed decisions on family size and spacing. Enabling women to delay starting families allows them to participate in education, employment, and political and civil activities. Supporting a strong reproductive and sexual healthcare system contributes to sustainable population growth, healthy populations and lessens pressure on resources. 

What is our Approach?

  • Build Partnerships: We work with in-country organisations to implement sexual and reproductive health services that directly benefit communities
  • Support Services: We provide health professionals with the knowledge, skills and information to ensure access to sexual and reproductive health services for all
  • Provide Training: We design, customise and deliver sexual and reproductive health education programs for clinicians, governments, communities, teachers, and students
  • Conduct Research: We undertake research on the knowledge, attitude, and effectiveness of reproductive and sexual health services in-country to ensure they are evidence based
  • Engage in Advocacy: We advocate for government commitments on comprehensive sexuality education and national sexual and reproductive health policies

How will your support help?

Your donations will help Family Planning NSW/Australia continue to ensure all people in the Pacific have the right to bodily autonomy and to make informed choices about their bodies, sexuality and reproduction, free from coercion, discrimination and violence and empower the Pacific to champion improved sexual and reproductive health and rights.
