The Family Planning Association of Hong Kong (FPAHK) is a non-profit organization providing sexual and reproductive health services, education, training and resources, advocacy and communications. It also offers research and studies to the community of Hong Kong.


FPAHK plays a major role in providing Hong Kong people with primary sexual and reproductive health care. As it receives around one-third of its funding from the Hong Kong Government’s Department of Health, and has established referral and shared care channels with the Hospital Authority, service fees are affordable in comparison with private alternatives. The Association offers services to everyone at various stages of their life cycle, irrespective of their age, marital status, race, religion and economic status.


The Family Planning Association of Hong Kong employs a number of in-house doctors as well as honorary medical consultants. Most of them are private clinicians who contribute their expertise in various specialties including: sub-fertility management, cervical diseases, and the surgical procedures of vasectomy and circumcision.
