We believe that we can achieve more together. Thus we have surrounded us with several networks of high expertise on SRHR.
Countdown 2030 Europe is a Consortium of 15 leading European non-governmental organizations working to ensure advancement of human rights and investment in family planning. Since 2004, our Consortium has established itself as Europe’s leading collective voice on the importance of addressing the global unmet need for family planning.
In European countries and with the EU Institutions, Countdown 2030 Europe holds donors to account for their policy and funding commitments to achieve universal access to reproductive health and address the unmet need for family planning.
Together with with Countdown2030Europe we also collect data and create resources for policymakers, donors and civil society organizations to advocate more effectively for reproductive health and family planning in national, European and international fora.
