Infographic: Global Indicators & Reporting

Before FP2020 was launched, the family planning community relied almost exclusively on periodic national health surveys, typically conducted every five years, to monitor progress. To provide an annual, global readout of key progress markers that would be applicable and available across countries, FP2020’s Performance Monitoring & Evidence Working Group, a group of global measurement experts, established a set of Core Indicators. The Core Indicators were selected with existing country data systems and monitoring efforts in mind, and were designed to capture information on contraceptive use, method choice, quality, availability, and other key aspects of family planning.

As part of its efforts to improve understanding of global indicators and reporting, FP2020 developed an infographic which illustrates how FP2020, Track20 and Monitoring & Evaluation Officers (MEOs) work to produce the Core Indicator estimates.
