Kaiser Family Foundation Releases Annual Analysis Of Donor Government Funding For Family Planning

Kaiser Family Foundation: Donor Government Funding for Family Planning in 2016
The Kaiser Family Foundation released its annual analysis of donor government funding for family planning. The report finds “donor government funding for family planning declined in 2016 for the second year in a row, decreasing to US$1.19 billion compared to US$1.34 billion in 2015. While the declines over this two-year period were largely due to exchange rate fluctuations and the timing of donor disbursements, which accounted for 78 percent of the overall decrease, there were actual cuts in funding from some donor countries, which accounted for 22 percent” (Wexler/Kates/Lief, 12/5).
