Donor Government Funding for Family Planning in 2016

A new Kaiser Family Foundation report finds that 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. Among the 10 donors profiled in the report, four donors decreased funding, including the two largest donors (the U.S. and the U.K.); five increased funding; and one remained flat.
