Please find the report under this link: www.countdown2030europe.org/storage/app/media/uploaded-files/C2030E_Contraceptive%20Supplies%20Financing_Donors.pdf.
The report discusses the roles that donors currently play in support of contraceptive supplies financing in low- and middle-income countries, and provides some ideas and recommendations for further advocacy on the topic. It includes sections on the current context on supplies financing in low- and middle-income countries, current trends in donor finance, processes of supplies procurement and financing at global and country levels, including related donor-supported initiatives, and on modalities of donor support, with a focus on European donors. The recommendations are focused on achieving an impact in advocacy for increased donor finance; increasing efficiency to stretch donor funds further; improving sustainability and helping to reduce inequities. For transition countries, recommendations are focused on reducing procurement costs and supporting new domestic financing initiatives.
Please feel free to share the report widely, we are currently using the hashtag #BecauseSheCounts on the account @C2030Europe and on partners’ accounts, if you wish to join.
