Spotlight: Family Planning Association of Sri Lanka

Established in 1953, the Family Planning Association of Sri Lanka (FPA Sri Lanka) serves as a non-governmental organization (NGO) that explores innovative and challenging processes of family planning in Sri Lanka. The organisation is proud to be one of the most expansive and well known NGO’s in the country that focuses on family planning, sexual and reproductive health and welfare, including among sexual minorities such as gay men and other men who have sex men and transgender people.

FPA Sri Lanka is currently one of the national sub-recipients of the Multi-Country South Asia Global Fund HIV Programme, in which APCOM acts as the regional sub-recipient. Under the Programme, FPA Sri Lanka aims to continue and improve its effort in providing HIV responses to MSM and transgender population, as well as to strengthen existing community-based organisations in the country working on issues of sexual health and human rights for MSM and transgender people through a range of capacity building activities. Furthermore, FPA Sri Lanka will work with national partners and community groups to strengthen an enabling policy and legal environment in society.

Also within the Programme, FPA Sri Lanka has participated in separate training on resource mobilisation, programme management and effective leadership provided by APCOM.
