On July 11, 2012, World Population Day was marked by a series of advocacy events in India organized by Health Policy Project (HPP) India’s partner, Jansankhya Sthirata Kosh (JSK, or the National Population Stabilization Fund), with the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare (NIHFW), and Citizens’ Alliance for Reproductive Health and Rights.  HPP worked closely with partners to promote linkages and provide technical assistance in developing evidence-based advocacy messages.  The day included three key events: A walkathon that drew over 2,000 participants, the National Conference for Population Action led by JSK, with participation from NIHFW and Citizens’ Alliance, and a dialogue between Parliamentarians, technical experts, and civil society led by Citizens’ Alliance.  For the first time, Parliamentarians joined advocacy and civil society groups to describe concrete actions, which they could take to improve family planning services in the high-focus states in India.
