SRHR Strategic Partnerships

SRHR Strategic Partnerships

CARE is represented on many global health and development coalitions and working groups, and representatives from our SRHR programs attend a variety of conferences and events each year to network with partner organizations and engage in advocacy and agenda-setting. We are proud to be active participants in the following groups:


CORE Group
CORE Group works with 70+ organizations and a network of partners to generate collaborative action and learning to improve and expand community-focused public health practices for underserved populations around the world.

CARE is a member of CORE and actively participates in many of their working groups, including the Monitoring and Evaluation Working Group and the Social Behavior Change Working Group.


Family Planning 2020
FP2020 is a global partnership of governments, civil society, multi-lateral organizations, donors, private sector actors, and the research and development community to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. FP2020 is an outcome of the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning where more than 20 governments made commitments to address the policy, financing, delivery and socio-cultural barriers to women accessing contraceptive information, services and supplies.

CARE is a commitment maker to FP2020.


Family Planning High Impact Practices (HIP)
HIPs are effective service delivery or systems interventions that when scaled up and institutionalized, will maximize investments in a comprehensive family planning strategy. Identified by a Technical Advisory Group (TAG), made up of international experts in family planning research, programming, and implementation, HIPs help family planning programs focus their resources and efforts to ensure they have the broadest reach and greatest impact. USAID coordinates HIPs

CARE is an endorsing organization to HIPs and has contributed evidence to HIP briefs.
