Funding & Resource Management
Strong political and financial commitment are imperative to meeting the growing demand for voluntary family planning services. Increased political commitment often depends on stakeholders who monitor government expenditures and hold governments accountable for fully implementing their family planning policies. Evidence-based advocacy helps to ensure that resources are available and aligned to improve access to quality programs.
Government budgets provide a window through which to measure true policy commitments at national and district levels. Policies without resources for implementation remain merely pieces of paper. The documents in this section of the Toolkit help guide the process of monitoring government expenditures and advocating for the resources that are required to fully support government health policies.
