Scorecard on the World Bank's Reproductive Health Action Plan
IPPF produced its inaugural scorecard in 2011, a year after the launch of the Bank’s Reproductive Health Action Plan. The 2011 scorecard made several recommendation to improve the Bank’s global efforts to strengthen health systems and to prioritize sexual and reproductive health.
The report assesses implementation across the 57 Action Plan priority countries. It makes recommendations to strengthen the Bank’s policies, partnerships, strategies and investments on reproductive health. IPPF calls on the Bank to implement its own promises as set out in its Action Plan, to ensure focus and investment in reproductive health up to and beyond 2015.
The scorecard is a tool for civil society advocates to hold the Bank to account for implementing the Reproductive Health Action Plan and to mobilize support for sexual and reproductive health and for the Action Plan globally, regionally and nationally, ensuring that it is properly embedded in the Bank’s global and regional policies and strategies.
