China Family Planning Association
The China Family Planning Association (CFPA) plays an important role in providing information and education and promoting voluntary family planning in China. Thanks to its millions of volunteers throughout the country, CFPA provides Chinese people with family planning, maternal and child health, healthier childbearing and adolescent sexual and reproductive health, both information and services.
The CFPA's main target groups are the vulnerable ones such as women of reproductive age in economically less developed areas, the young people between 10-24 years old, the migrants and the ethnics in the remote areas. These people often lack both the knowledge and the skills to improve their health and status and the access to reproductive health information and education.
In recent years, a nationwide 'Reproductive Care Campaign', has been implemented at the grassroot level throughout the country. This campaign benefits millions of ordinary women, men and young people, not only provide information, education and services in reproductive health, but also promote rights awareness. Such contributes towards the building of a harmonious society.
Through the Democratic Participation in Society (DPS) Project, CFPA helps to protect the legal rights of Chinese citizens especially in the area of reproductive health.
