Dear Ms Bishop
Thank you for consistently emphasizing the importance of helping woman and girls through Australia’s aid program.
As you know, family planning services save lives and give women and girls the power to decide when and how many children they have.
Yet Australia’s funding for family planning has dropped to half what it was three years ago.
Australia has a critical role in making sure that women and girls in the world’s poorest places have access to family planning services – and now there is a great opportunity to demonstrate our commitment.
I ask you to use the upcoming Family Planning Summit in London as an opportunity to pledge to restore Australia’s life-saving family planning funding and to commit an additional $10 million each year for the next three years.
