The Gambia Family Planning Association (GFPA) is a voluntary NGO that was established in 1968 by a retired doctor named Dr. Samuel J. Palmer. It began by mainly to offer planned parenthood information and services to the general population especially women in their reproductive age.

Today, it is focused on disseminating  and promoting quality sexual and reproductive health information and rights for all men and women in The Gambia, particularly young people, and protecting people against AIDS/HIV via lobbying, advocacy, advice, behaviour change counselling, use of contraception and the provision of health care services for partners and individuals.

The GFPA is run by volunteers who help formulate policy and make decisions for the Association which are then carried out through bodies at the district, divisional and national levels throughout the whole of the Gambia. The National Council, elected by the General Assembly every two years, performs the executive functions of the Association.

The work of the GFPA is carried out through local meetings, discussions, lectures, home visits, and videos.

The organisation is an affiliated member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
