We envision a world where people have optimal reproductive health and rights. The Society of Family Planning advances sexual and reproductive health through research, education, advocacy and professional development. The SFP Research Fund supports research on contraception and abortion that exerts a sustained, powerful influence on clinical practice, public policy, health services, programs and culture.
