Commitments

With a relatively high health expenditure per capita within the region, Cameroon has made ambitious financial commitments since 2014. The government has pledged to advocate for a 5% increase every year in the budget for reproductive health and family planning along with creation of a budget line for family planning commodities. In 2017, Cameroon honored this commitment with a 200 million CFA budget line for family planning commodities, allowing the country to increase focus on improving in-country coordination and supply chain, along with a national scale-up of DMPA-SC at community level. Despite this, many challenges remain within supply chain and data management, but also the need to aim for municipal financial buy-in, leaving Cameroon making slow progress towards increased mCPR use.
