Sex and Society
Family Planning Association want a world where everyone has access to information and health care services in relation to sexuality, pregnancy and childbirth. Where sexuality is recognized in its diversity, both as a valuable part of life and as a fundamental human right. And where stigma and discrimination does not exist and where the right to choose is fully respected.

Top of the association's agenda was the question of abortion, mandatory sex education in schools and information about contraception.
Almost 50 years later, Danish women have access to abortion, sex education is a compulsory subject in primary schools, and the association has changed its name to Family Planning.
In 2006 celebrated the association's 50th anniversary.
Some may think that the association in the domestic field has run its course. But there are still too many girls who become pregnant in Denmark, for many young people who are infected with a sexsygdom and too little quality of public schools' sex education. So there is still enough to address.
Today, the Family Planning Association of work broader and encompasses the entire world, and we work with all topics related to health and rights concerning sexuality, pregnancy and childbirth.
Family Planning Association has since 1994 carried out development projects in a number of developing countries. Since its inception, Family Planning Association was a member of the world's leading family planning organization, the International Planned Parenthood Federation .
