Donor Government Funding for Family Planning in 2017
Totals represent disbursements specifically designated by donor governments for family planning as defined by the OECD DAC (see methodology), and include: standalone family planning projects; family planning-specific contributions to multilateral organizations (e.g., contributions to UNFPA Supplies); and, in some cases, projects that include family planning within broader reproductive health activities.
Includes core-contributions from members of the OECD DAC only; core contributions from non-DAC donors are not included in this total.

- Includes funding from 29 DAC member countries and the European Union (EU).
- Donor government funding for family planning increased in 2013 and 2014, following the London Summit in 2012. The declines in 2015 and 2016 were largely due to currency fluctuations and a delay in disbursements by the U.S.
- In FY17, the U.S. administration invoked the Kemp-Kasten amendment to withhold funding – both core and non-core contributions – to UNFPA. In the prior year (FY16), U.S. contributions to UNFPA had totaled $69 million, including $30.7 million in core resources and an additional $38.3 million in non-core resources for other project activities (see KFF “UNFPA Funding & Kemp-Kasten: An Explainer”).
