Key Points
  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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”).
