Mar 28, 2022

ICFP celebrates the launch of FP2030’s first ever regional hubs in Nairobi, Kenya and Abuja, Nigeria! These hubs are a critical next step in the evolution of the #FP2030Partnership, strengthening the family planning network across Africa.

“Building on the strengths and successes of FP2020, we’re accelerating progress that ensures our efforts are country-led and remain globally connected,” FP2030 Executive Director Dr. Samukeliso Dube said.

Congratulations to Population Council, Nigeria for hosting the North, West, & Central Africa Hub and to AMREF for hosting the East & Southern Africa Hub!

And be sure to tune in to the latest installment of The Pulse of FP to hear more from Dr. Dube about the future of family planning.

Dear colleagues,

We’re thrilled to finally be able to announce the first two FP2030 regional hubs outside of North America: the North, West, & Central Africa Hub will be based in Abuja, Nigeria, and hosted by Population Council, Nigeria; and the East & Southern Africa Hub will be based in Nairobi, Kenya, and hosted by Amref Health Africa.

We hope you’ll join us in thanking Amref Health and Population Council Nigeria for their support in hosting these regional hubs. You can learn more about the work of the hubs and how they are selected here.

Launching these two hubs is a critical next step in building the new FP2030 Support Network. We plant to announce two additional hubs, the Latin America & Caribbean Hub and the Asia & the Pacific Hub, later this year. All hubs should be operational by the International Conference on Family Planning in November, we look forward to celebrating with you there!

Thank you for your continued partnership.

Sincerely,

Samu Dube
FP2030 Executive Director
