Project Syndicate: Sustainable Financing for Family Planning
Esenam Amuzu, member of the Women Deliver Young Leader class of 2018 and the Youth Advisory Board of the Ghana SRHR Alliance for Young People, and founder of the My Teen Life project
“…[O]rganizations protecting [sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)] all over the world are facing … financing constraints. … Even existing funding is not guaranteed, owing to factors ranging from fluctuating exchange rates to changing political agendas. … Developing-country governments must urgently reduce their dependence on outside donors. And yet, so far, they have been slow to pick up the slack. … [R]esponsibility for upholding SRHR ultimately lies with national leaders, who must develop long-term strategies for ensuring sustainable financing for sexual and reproductive health, including family planning. Their countries’ development depends on it” (9/11).
