As 2010 marked the tenth year of adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), APA focused advocacy work on the importance of investing in sexual and reproductive health and rights to achieve the MDGs. MESSAGE One of the highlights of the year was the 10th APA Conference and Meetings ‘Investing in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for the MDGs: Priorities Leading up to 2015 and Beyond’. APA ensured strong regional presence with global and regional meetings in New York (UNFPA NGO Consultation), Washington (Women Deliver), Melbourne (UN DPI/NGO Conference), Seoul (21st International Youth Conference), London (EURONGOS 2010 International Conference) and Bangkok (UNFPA ICOMP Regional Consultation on Family Planning). Partnerships were strengthened and new ones established through networking and the attendance at global and regional meetings. In 2010, APA started an improved advocacy grants programme that supports members in their national work to increase resources for target MDG 5b: to achieve universal access to reproductive health. The programme is running in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea and Thailand. APA is thankful for the time and commitment of the members of the Independent Review Panel, including Eriko Hibi and her colleagues at the United Nations Fund for Population and Development (UNFPA) Asia and the Pacific Regional Office (APRO) as well as Sono Aibe and Katherine McDonald. 2010 was also the year for APA to implement the strategic directions and outputs of the 2009 organisational effectiveness review. Key successes were the adoption of bylaws and alignment of programmes with new advocacy and communication strategies. The year also saw the development and launch of the report ‘Making SRHR Count: Asia and the Pacific Resource Flows Project 2010’. We hope this collected evidence will strengthen the important advocacy work of our members further. Membership was expanded this year as APA welcomed Marie Stopes International Australia, Burnet Institute and Pathfinder International, strengthening APA further with their skills and expertise in the region. Details of the year’s activities are outlined in this Annual Report. We offer warm thanks to members, partners and friends for the support that led to our successes in 2010. APA looks forward to furthering its work to increase leadership in the Asia and Pacific region that will advance the ICPD agenda, achieve the MDGs and ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health.

G8 member nations committed to collectively spend an additional US$5 billion between 2010 and 2015 to accelerate progress to reduce maternal mortality (MDG 5), as well as infant and child mortality (MDG 4) in developing countries. ¡ Outcome document ‘Keeping the Promise: United to Achieve the Millennium Development Goals’, adopted at the High-Level Plenary Meeting on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG Summit), New York, September 2010. This document reaffirmed world leaders’ commitment to the MDGs and set out a concrete action agenda for achieving the MDGs by 2015. ¡ Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, launched at the MDG Summit, September 2010. Also called ‘Every Woman, Every Child,’ the strategy is a roadmap that identifies finance and policy requirements as well as critical interventions to improve women’s and children’s health and save lives. ¡ International Alliance for Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health, announced in September 2010. This alliance is a five-year public/private global initiative that contributes to the goal of reducing the unmet need for family planning, expanding skilled birth attendance and facility-based deliveries, and increasing the numbers of women and newborns receiving quality post-natal care by 2015. Founding alliance members U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), UK Department for International Development (DFID), Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation pledged $40 billion over the next five years. About $27 billion of this is new funding. ¡ Global Leaders Council for Reproductive Health, launched by the Aspen Institute in September 2010. The Council—comprised of a group of sixteen sitting and former heads of state, high-level policymakers and other leaders—agreed to mobilise the political will and financial resources necessary to achieve universal access to reproductive health by 2015. ¡ Resolution extending the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action (PoA) and the Key Actions for Further Implementation Beyond 2014, adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2010. INVESTING IN SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS With only five years left, efforts to accelerate progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have taken centre stage in the development agenda in 2010. Countries have jumped on the bandwagon reviewing progress towards MDGs and scaling up their efforts to achieve the targets. In June, the UN 2010 MDG Report found that MDG 5 was falling well short of its target to reduce maternal mortality rates by three quarters between 1990 and 2015. MDG5: IMPROVE MATERNAL HEALTH Target 5a Reduce the maternal mortality ratio by three quarters Target 5b Achieve universal access to reproductive health by 2015 The response from governments and donors has been encouraging with new commitments for women’s and children’s health. APA ANNUAL REPORT 201002 03 A diverse group of about fifty representatives from NGOs, youth organisations, governments, donors and multilateral agencies from sixteen countries gathered for the 10th APA Conference and Meetings in October 2010. Held in Penang, Malaysia, APA members and partners discussed the theme ‘Investing in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for the MDGs: Priorities Leading Up to 2015 and Beyond’. The conference and meetings aimed to: ¡ Inform participants of the outcomes of the September 2010 UN MDG Summit and discuss further follow-up strategies ¡ Showcase best-practice advocacy and programmatic interventions to achieve the MDGs, especially MDG 5b ¡ Examine ways to enhance donor support/resources for sexual and reproductive health, particularly through better understanding of funding sources and the current aid environment ¡ Increase advocacy potential of civil society representatives to promote meaningful participation in sexual and reproductive health and rights decision-making ¡ Develop key strategic recommendations for APA’s 2011 and 2012 plans The conference critically examined shared strategies to position gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and HIV/AIDS higher on the development agenda in an effective way towards and beyond 2015. UNFPA Asia and the Pacific Regional Office (APRO), UNIFEM (now UN Women) East and Southeast Asia Regional Office, and the Asian Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW) joined APA members and partners as they shared outcomes of the UN MDG Summit and reviewed progress and setbacks in achieving the MDGs and the ICPD PoA. Civil society strategies and advocacy lessons were shared. Strengthening political will, intensifying advocacy efforts and reinforcing commitments to deliver family planning and reproductive health services were among the many identified best practices. An urgent need to improve information and available data for the Pacific region was also identified as a way to drive policy makers to scale up investments in the Pacific sub-regions. ADVOCACY, NETWORKING AND CAPACITY BUILDING Outcomes The conference produced recommendations for both civil society as well as government entities, donors and multilateral agencies. Civil society recommendations included specific actions on the following: influencing policies; strengthening partnerships, coalition-building and harmonisation of actions; establishing evidence-based advocacy through research and data collection; and supporting capacity building, awareness raising and education. Specific action recommendations for government entities/donors/multilateral agencies were in the areas of political and financial commitment for action; coalition-building and participation; research and data collection; and capacity building and education. The conference closed with the consensus that stakeholders should work towards providing access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services as one of the most effective development interventions. This included integration and linkages with other health and non-health sector programmes and harmonising efforts through partnerships at all levels. Whilst this broad-based, integrated approach will accelerate progress towards achieving the MDGs, participants concluded that targeted, evidence- based advocacy for political commitment and action is needed to achieve universal access to sexual and reproductive health for more real and sustainable impact. The full conference report can be found on the APA website with live links to organisations and resources. 10TH APA CONFERENCE AND MEETINGS Challenges were identified and recommendations were crafted to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights interventions in five priority areas: maternal health, HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability, gender equality and sexuality education. Ways to enhance financial support through better understanding of funding sources and the current aid environment were also examined at the conference. The ‘Money Matters’ panel discussed initiatives at various levels. The Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD) shared parliamentarians’ initiatives and commitments on MDG 5. The Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) provided a closer look at aid effectiveness, and the findings of the APA-initiated Making SRHR Count: The Asia Pacific Resource Flows project were presented. The conference also featured capacity building sessions. The ‘Monitoring and Tracking of Donor Funding’ session identified avenues for finding information and developing various methods to monitor bilateral, emerging and multilateral donors. The ‘Creating Demand for Effective Aid in Recipient Countries’ session identified strategies on how civil society in recipient countries can strengthen advocacy around official development assistance (ODA). The conference also provided a venue for dialogue between civil society and donors. The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Ministry of Public Health Thailand discussed their aid approaches, programmes and processes. These included proposal writing, monitoring and evaluation, and support mechanisms to enable civil society to access donor funds. APA was advised to maintain its role of uniting a diverse group of stakeholders to foster networking and sharing. The current financial crisis and shifting global power structure, the role and influence of global groups such as the G8, the challenges of declining funding and the effects of this trend in programme implementation were discussed alongside the need for governments to take responsibility to ensure that sexual and reproductive health and rights is prioritised. The Africa-Japan Forum (AJF), International Planned Parenthood Federation East and South East Asia and Oceania Region (IPPF ESEAOR), UNFPA and the Youth Coalition highlighted tools and frameworks to respond to gaps, challenges and the role that agencies should play to further progress and look beyond 2015. 0504 Global Consultation between UNFPA and NGOs The UNFPA headquarters held a meeting in New York to exchange views and strategies on how NGOs and UNFPA can move the outcomes of ICPD+15 forward, taking into account linkages between ICPD, the Beijing Platform for Action and the MDGs. APA had a strong presence during the consultation held in February 2010. APA secretariat and its members the Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP), Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD), International Council on Management of Population Programmes (ICOMP) and Pathfinder International attended the meeting and emphasised the needs of and highlighted the opportunities in the Asia and Pacific region. Women Deliver Conference APA joined other leaders and advocates at the Women Deliver Conference in Washington, in June 2010. The conference aimed to build momentum and accelerate action on improving safe motherhood and moving the dialogue to the global arena. APA secretariat hosted a luncheon for APA members from Australia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Thailand and the USA to share national and regional updates on advocacy work on MDG5b. ADVOCACY, NETWORKING AND CAPACITY BUILDING STRENGTHENING EVIDENCE-BASED ADVOCACY PROJECT RESOURCE MOBILISATION AND AWARENESS In 2009, APA was a sub-grantee of Project Resource Mobilization and Awareness (Project RMA), a joint effort of Population Action International (PAI), the German Foundation for World Population (DSW) and IPPF. The initiative works to focus attention on reproductive health supply shortages around the world. In 2010, Project RMA continued to support the strengthening of APA‘s advocacy efforts regarding reproductive health supplies in Asia and the Pacific. With this support APA members worked on the following initiatives: Strengthening Support for Reproductive Health Supplies Family Planning International New Zealand (FPI NZ) implemented activities to increase support for reproductive health supplies in the Pacific by strengthening the advocacy capacity of civil society in Tonga and Vanuatu. FPI NZ worked with partner organisations to identify key barriers to reproductive health supplies and to design national advocacy plans. The project contributed to stronger relationships with donors and civil society. FPI NZ worked on a terms of reference with UNFPA for the Pacific Inter-Agency Working Group on Strengthening Health Supply Systems in Pacific Island Countries to enhance health commodities security in consultation with WHO, UNAIDS and other regional agencies. Achieving Contraceptive Security and Meeting Reproductive Health Needs in Southeast Asia APA published and distributed in 2010 the report ‘Achieving Contraceptive Security and Meeting Reproductive Health Needs in Southeast Asia’. Written by Dr. Rosalia Sciortino, the report reviewed the provision of contraceptive services and commodities in Southeast Asia, assessed progress in achieving contraceptive security and meeting the reproductive health needs of the region’s population. The project was conducted in partnership with the Institute for Population and Social Research (IPSR) of Mahidol University, Thailand. MAKING SRHR COUNT: ASIA AND THE PACIFIC RESOURCE FLOWS PROJECT 2010 APA commissioned and published the desktop research that tracked and analysed existing data on resource flows for sexual and reproductive health and rights in Asia and the Pacific. ’Making SRHR Count: Asia and the Pacific Resource Flows Project 2010’ identified the gaps and most urgent needs for sexual and reproductive health donor assistance in the region. The report covered twenty-one countries and examined bilateral, emerging and multilateral donors in Asia and the Pacific. Among the issues and trends identified were the rise in out-of-pocket expenditures, a large discrepancy between unmet needs and funding availability, and the lack of accurate data to enable better tracking and monitoring. The research also showed that funding by external donors needs to increase eightfold in order to meet MDG targets. The information in the report was reviewed and consolidated by APA members, and outcomes of the research were shared at regional and global meetings. The full report is available on the APA website. One of APA’s aims is to conduct and publish research that will strengthen evidence-based advocacy efforts to improve sexual and reproductive health responses in Asia and the Pacific. Recent projects include: REGIONAL AND GLOBAL MEETINGS International Youth Forum APA actively contributed to the 21st International Youth Forum (IYF) 2010 ‘The Role of Youth for Achieving the Cairo Agenda (ICPD)’ held in Seoul, Republic of Korea in August 2010. APA chair Sumie Ishii provided the keynote speech and APA secretariat gave a presentation on population and sustainable development, and a backgrounder on APA’s work. The forum was organised by APA member National Council of Youth Organizations in Korea (NCYOK), and hosted by the Korea Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. One hundred and twenty five youth participants from thirty-nine countries produced the Youth Declaration that called on civil society to take action to move the Cairo Agenda forward in collaboration with young people. Utilising the IYF platform to advocate for the achievement of ICPD and MDG 5b is part of the APA advocacy grant project of the Planned Population Federation of Korea (PPFK). UN DPI NGO Conference At the 63rd Annual UN Department of Public Information/ Non-Governmental Organisations (UN DPI/NGO) Conference held in Melbourne in September 2010, APA coordinated the workshop ‘The Unfinished Agenda of SRHR: Achieving the Right to Health in Asia and the Pacific’. With over sixty participants, the workshop presented a mapping on unmet sexual and reproductive health needs and donor aid resource flows. The workshop also provided a venue to discuss advocacy initiatives NGOs can use to increase funding and improve the policies of donor governments to achieve the MDGs in the region. APA’s partners at the conference were its members the Australian Reproductive Health Alliance (ARHA), Burnet Institute, Family Planning International New Zealand (FPI NZ), Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP), Marie Stopes International Australia (MSIA), Planned Population Federation of Korea (PPFK) and Sexual Health and Family Planning Australia (SH&FPA). The conference enhanced and strengthened collaboration and coordination among APA members. Gender and SRHR at the Heart of the MDGs APA was among the 164 participants to attend the EuroNGOs 2010 International Conference in London. The event was an opportunity to consider gender and sexual and reproductive health and rights within global development agendas, especially for achieving the MDGs and the ICPD Programme of Action. APA and EuroNGOs both have a strong emphasis on advocacy for political commitment and resources for the ICPD agenda. The meeting offered a venue for exchange of information and knowledge on donor strategies from different regions. UNFPA and ICOMP Regional Consultation APA participated in the consultation ‘Family Planning in Asia and the Pacific – Addressing the Challenges’ organised by UNFPA APRO and ICOMP. Held in December 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand, 150 delegates from twenty-four countries across the region agreed to the Asia and Pacific Call for Action for Universal Access for Family Planning. The outcome document urged governments to enhance leadership, governance and political commitment, and to reposition family planning in national development agendas. Delegates committed to increase and sustain adequate financial resources to ensure universal access to reproductive health services and commodities. APA ANNUAL REPORT 2010 APA ANNUAL REPORT 2010 0706 GOVERNANCE With APA’s new modified programme framework and the lessons learned and recommendations from the APA conference, the APA members meeting took place on 8 October 2010. Members planned for more effective and cohesive advocacy and communication strategies by strengthening in-country collaboration and identifying areas of cooperation. Organisational matters were tackled to strengthen APA and further the advocacy of sexual and reproductive health and rights within donor countries in the region and in the global arena. APA bylaws and constitution were approved. APA is governed by an elected steering committee that held meetings in June in Tokyo, Japan, and in October in Penang, Malaysia where the 2011 APA Steering Committee was elected. APA also welcomed several new members in 2010: Pathfinder International, Marie Stopes International Australia and Burnet Institute. KEY FOCUS AREAS ARE: ¡ SRHR and MDG linkages ¡ Family planning and reproductive health supplies ¡ Maternal health ¡ HIV linkages/integration ¡ Women and gender ¡ Tracking and monitoring ¡ ICPD+15 processes ¡ Young people COMMUNICATION APA launched its new logo, brochure and website this year. These changes complement APA’s new programme framework, revised goals and objectives and intended impact, including improved governance along with strategies for advocacy and communication. Communication activities focused on implementing communication and advocacy strategies. Activities ranged from improving information sharing among members to improving and redesigning the website, including web content, establishing and launching an intranet, and the creation of listserves as well as the provision of relevant information to members via the APA Update, which is APA’s fortnightly e-newsletter. Twenty-one issues of the newsletter were produced and distributed to a mailing list of approximately 240 subscribers. FINANCE APA is supported by donors during different grant periods as reflected in its financial report. APA works in partnership with the Planned Parenthood Association of Thailand (PPAT) and is in the process of official registration with the Government of Thailand. APA is thankful for the support of donors and for PPAT’s support and services. In Australia, Sexual Health and Family Planning Australia (SH&FPA) with other APA members and partners are building commitment to sexual and reproductive health rights and the achievement of MDG 5b in the Pacific. The project focuses on improving communication, coordination and collaboration that will strengthen and enhance the strategic alignment of priorities and activities between donor NGOs, governments and other stakeholders. The programme aims to strengthen and develop networks between donor NGOs and other Australian-based NGOs working on sexual and reproductive health rights to increase Australian community awareness of and the government’s commitment to sexual and reproductive health rights and MDG 5 and 5b. In Japan, Africa-Japan Forum (AJF) is establishing a civil society coalition in Asian countries to coordinate and strengthen advocacy on the MDGs and sexual and reproductive health and rights at key global meetings. In particular, advocacy activities will be aimed at the G20, the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness and Japan’s ODA reform process. The coalition will work to ensure that the G20 Asia and Pacific member countries Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan and the Republic of Korea focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights and the MDGs. The project also aims to strengthen Japan’s contribution for health-related MDGs and sexual and reproductive health and rights at both policy and aid levels through civil society advocacy. In New Zealand, Family Planning International New Zealand (FPI NZ) is organising a study tour to increase awareness, understanding and commitment to action, as well as the advocacy capacity of New Zealand parliamentarians and key people from the media. The project contributes towards regional efforts to highlight maternal mortality issues and MDG5b. The study tour will promote collaboration among parliamentarians from across political parties and different media personnel and foster relationships between APA coalition partners, New Zealand parliamentarians, the media and the New Zealand Aid Programme. APA provides support to members’ national advocacy campaigns, primarily through advocacy grants. The programme allows members to plan in-country advocacy activities based on national priorities. In 2010, the APA Advocacy Grants Programme entered its ninth cycle focusing on advocacy for MDG 5b. An independent review panel assessed proposals from members in Australia, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand and Thailand. Each country was allocated US$33,000. Activities run from June 2010 until November 2011. NATIONAL ADVOCACY GRANTS PROGRAMME In the Republic of Korea, Planned Population Federation of Korea (PPFK) is advocating to increase understanding on and resources for sexual and reproductive health and rights and MDG5b at three international events to be held in the country. A special session with APA on SRHR and MDG5b was held at the 21st International Youth Forum in 2010. For 2011, special sessions will be held during the 10th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific and the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness. These advocacy activities strengthen commitments to increase resources for MDG5b and incorporate sexual and reproductive health care and services to achieve universal access to reproductive health. In Thailand, Raks Thai Foundation is engaging HIV-positive youth to work together with APA members and respond to the sexual and reproductive health education and services for children and young people living with HIV. The project focuses on building advocacy packages that can be used at the sub- district, provincial and national levels. The project also advocates nationally for strengthening reproductive health for young people living with HIV. The project will also organise a consultative meeting between Thai partners, Thailand International Development Cooperation Agency (TICA) and representatives of neighbouring countries on regional sharing and collaboration.
