African Members of Parliament have a unique role to play in ensuring that the Sub-Saharan African countries realise their commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) overall and specifically to SRHR, HIV/AIDS and gender equality at national, regional, continental and international levels.
The African Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development (FPA) is a dynamic regional network of national all-party parliamentary groups which was established in 2012 and which represents a cross-section of African parliaments and their various parliamentary groups and political parties. As such, FPA is the main forum where African parliamentarians can collaborate to achieve an integrated approach to SRHR, HIV/AIDS and gender equality and actively engage stakeholders on population and development issues in the continent. FPA membership is drawn from all countries in the sub-Saharan Africa region.
The FPA is open to all African parliamentarians who are interested in population and development. Further information on how to become a member can be obtained by contacting the FPA Secretariat.
