Milestones in reproductive health policymaking and reform have taken place during the last ten years in various developing countries. These milestones have one thing in common: networks or coalitions successfully advocated for FP/RH/HIV/AIDS policy and program changes. What made these networks succeed? What lessons do their networking initiatives provide for FP/RH/HIV/AIDs policymaking, particularly in the area of the health rights of the most vulnerable segments of the populations. This paper analyzes advocacy networks in 3 countries and identifies specific factors and practices of effective advocacy networks.
