Pg. 02 Family Planning NT Overview Family Planning Welfare Association NT Annual Report 2017 to 2018 Family Planning Welfare NT Overview Family Planning Welfare Association NT is a non-government organisation (NGO) responsible to a governing board of volunteers. In 1973 the Family Planning Association of the Northern Territory Inc. (FPANT) delivered family planning services through established NGOs. Because of operational and administration advantages, FPANT, which later changed its name to Family Planning Welfare Association of the Northern Territory Incorporation (FPWANT), commenced the devolution of its services to FPWNT. This process was completed in September 1997. Each Australian state and territory has a lead family planning organisation and together they constitute the primary membership of Family Planning Alliance Australia (FPAA). FPAA is the nations peak body in reproductive and sexual health. It promotes advances in public health through policy, insight and advocacy. FPAA does not provide clinical or education services. FPAA is a member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). IPPF, FPAA and FPWNT are guided by the outcomes of the 1994 UN Population Fund (UNFPA) International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). FPWNT is a member of the Asia Pacific Alliance. The 1994 ICPD was a milestone in the history of population and development, as well as women's rights. At the conference, 179 countries agreed to a 20-year programme of action, focusing on individuals' needs and rights, including concrete goals such as providing universal education and ensuring universal access by 2015 to reproductive health care, including family planning, assisted childbirth and prevention of sexually transmitted infections. UNFPA website, www.unfpa.org On 1st January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2013 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic United Nations summit officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. Countries have the primary responsibility for follow-up and review of the progress made in implementing the Goals, which will require quality, accessible and timely data collection. The four Goals that relate to Family Planning Welfare NT: http://www.unfpa.org/
