More than 225 million women in the developing world who wish to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy are still not using an effective method of contraception. This unmet need for family planning is in part due to insufficient investment in sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Currently the financing architecture is changing with new priorities, new modalities of funding and re-orientation to align with the Sustainable Development Goals.
The anticipated changes to global development financial architecture are complex and multifaceted; and present threats and opportunities to sexual and reproductive health and rights. Influencing the development financing architecture is critical if we are to fulfill the unmet need for family planning and ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
