Kaiser Family Foundation Report Examines Donor Governments’ Bilateral Funding For Family Planning Programs In LMICs

Kaiser Family Foundation: Donor Government Funding for Family Planning was Essentially Flat in 2015 in Real Terms, Though It Declined When Measured in Current U.S. Dollars
“A new Kaiser Family Foundation report finds that donor governments provided US$1.3 billion in bilateral funding for family planning programs in low- and middle-income countries in 2015, essentially matching 2014 levels in real terms (after accounting for exchange rate fluctuations and inflation). In current U.S. dollars, however, 2015 funding was six percent below the 2014 level, largely due to the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. … The U.S. was the largest donor, providing US$638 million, or nearly half of all bilateral funding for family planning programs in 2015…” (11/1).
