Report
  1. The Kaiser Family Foundation initiated a family planning resource tracking project in 2013, adapting the methodology it has long used to track donor government spending on HIV. Since 2002, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the Kaiser Family Foundation have been tracking donor government assistance for HIV in low- and middle-income countries by the donor government members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC). For the methodological approach used to monitor donor government spending on HIV see: https://www.kff.org/global-health-policy/report/financing-the-response-to-aids-in-low/.

  3. U.S. appropriations for family planning (FP) activities in a given fiscal year may be disbursed over a multi-year period. Therefore, while U.S. appropriations for FP have been relatively flat over the past several years, the actual disbursements have fluctuated over the same period.
