To achieve “universal access” to voluntary, high-quality family planning (FP) services - international FP funders seek to increase financing for FP in low- and middle-income countries. This now faces fiscal and practical challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Global Financing Facility (GFF), launched in 2015, aims to “create the conditions for sustainable financing for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH-N) interventions.” In this article for the Center for Global Development, Rachel SilvermanJaneen Keller and Amanda Glassman set out the role of the GFF and discuss including contraception in health benefit packages, and the incorporation of FP in investment cases and World Bank projects.
