Dates of existence

1974 -


The Federation of Family Planning Associations was established in 1974 and incorporated in 1975 as a federation of State-based associations to advocate for legislation and social reforms and to develop education, training and research at a national level. The Federal Council had representatives from each State and from five National Advisory Committees: Medical, Training, Ethics and Legislation, Communications and Biological Sciences, which were later replaced by goal-oriented task forces. From 1984 the Federation acted as a agent of the Australian Development Assistance Bureau in the South Pacific, developing information kits and recordings relating to family planning and sexually-transmitted diseases targeted at Pacific Island cultures. It changed its name to the Family Planning Federation of Australia in 1985 and to Family Planning Australia in 1993.
