Family Planning News Network

FPNN is a network for journalists, experts and influencers who are committed to reporting on the transformative power of family planning and reproductive health. FPNN is driven by the mission to support our network members in the creation and distributing of news about the power of family planning and reproductive health. We are looking for journalists and content creators who want to explore how family planning and reproductive health is a key investment on the path to achieving the SDGs.

Malawi Reporting Trip

The W.H. Gates Sr. Institute and the Family Planning News Network (FPNN) will be taking a group of journalists and content creators to Malawi to report on the transformative power of family planning and reproductive health. The trip will introduce participants to powerful stories, influential people, and new ways of looking at key research and data. FPNN will be visiting local communities, joining leaders at the African Population Conference and learning from regional and global experts.
