PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

Yes :

* The State has included family planning as a subject in school curricula, upon our advocacy.
* Adoption of reproductive health programmes on the part of the Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Social Affairs
* Establishment of a national standing committee for the population

Measures of success:  
                             
* Making legislative changes  
* Achieving the goals set within the Association’s Advocacy Strategy
* Qualitative and quantitative progress in public stance on raised issues
* Youth involvement in the FPA’s activities and programmes

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

Major obstacles encountered :

* Some sponsors grant their financial support according to political rather than methodological considerations
* Relatively increasing needs compared to limited resources  
* Poor capabilities of the Lebanese Government.

Action areas :

* Population issues

* Youth issues: Participation, protection and prevention
* Women issues: Empowerment and elimination of all kinds of discrimination against women

Most important activities developed :

* The FPA operates according to a set strategy for the period 2003-2007
* In 2005 changes were made based on the new strategy of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), known as the 5 As.
* The new strategy includes working fields related to youth and adolescents; AIDS; community outreach; and abortion, which is relatively limited either because there is no actual need for it or due to community rejection of this notion.
