Mapping the Donor Landscape in Global Health: Family Planning and Reproductive Health

Many different nations and multilateral organizations provide assistance to support family planning and reproductive health in countries around the globe. This report maps the geographic donor landscape of FP/RH assistance, looking both at donor presence and magnitude of donor assistance. It is intended to serve as an easy-to-use information source and tool for policymakers and other stakeholders in both donor and recipient countries.

The report finds that thirty-six different donors gave family planning and reproductive health assistance from 2009 to 2011 – a number comparable to the number of donors who gave HIV assistance over the same period, and significantly greater than the numbers of donors who provided assistance for malaria and tuberculosis.

The United States was the largest donor, providing 29 percent of total assistance. The top five donors – the United States, the United Nations Populations Fund, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the World Bank – together accounted for nearly three-quarters of family planning and reproductive health assistance.

This is the fourth and final report in a series of analyses examining the donor nations and multilateral organizations involved in addressing different global health challenges in recipient countries worldwide. The reports seek to provide perspective on the geographic presence of global health donors, and to enable more effective coordination and delivery of services globally and within individual recipient nations.
