Adolescent girls and women are among the most underserved populations globally, and lack of access to family planning and nutrition services. Using existing platforms in new ways to reach this vulnerable group is one key opportunity to address this gap.

Nutrition International and UNFPA will increase the impact of nutrition and family planning interventions for women and adolescent girls by: improving service access; achieving program efficiencies; and harnessing the mutually reinforcing nature of sexual and reproductive health and nutrition programming.

Nutrition International’s investment of up to $2 million (CAD) in UNFPA, made through the Government of Canada funded Nutrition Leverage and Influence for Transformation (N-LIFT) program, will:

  • Reach 500,000 women and girls over two years in Nigeria and Senegal with iron and folic acid, and nutrition education and counseling services that have been integrated with family planning interventions
  • Leverage UNFPA family planning and maternal health services delivered through government-run clinics and civil society organizations
  • Generate evidence for future scale up through UNFPA programs, which reach 15 million women annually
  • Support global efforts to reduce iron deficiency anemia, low birth weight, and neural tube defects (SDG 2), and increase access to reproductive health services (SDG 5).

NST, a Philippines-based apparel supplier for global brands such as Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, and J. Crew, together with its subsidiaries, Hamlin and Reliance Producers Cooperative, commits to reach 6,000 employees, 4,500 of whom are women, with family planning information and services in order to increase the use of modern family planning methods from 54 percent to 70 percent among male and female employees by 2018. NST will also seek to reach 90 percent of pregnant and lactating mothers with post-partum family planning counseling sessions. And finally, NTS will train nurses, human resources staff, and peer health educators on family planning methods and counseling in order to connect employees directly with services

By the end of the 2018, NST Global Corporation seeks to achieve the following workplace family planning program objectives for the company’s two subsidiaries in the Philippines, Hamlin Industrial Corporation and Reliance Apparel Fashion and Manufacturing Corporation:

  • With its 6,000 total employees, NST shall ensure that 100% of all employees of reproductive age shall have access to FP information through the provision of regular family planning education;
  • With its 6,000 total employees, NST shall ensure that at least 70% of employees with modern FP unmet needs shall be given access to modern FP services based on informed choice and voluntarism, thus reducing unplanned pregnancies. Employees who have unmet need for modern family planning are those who express their intentions of not having children and voluntarily decide to use modern contraceptives and yet are not able to use modern FP methods for various reasons.
  • With its 4,500 women employees, NST shall ensure that at least 90% of post-partum employees shall have access to FP information and services to enable them to space or plan their births.
    NST Global Corporation, through the above two subsidiaries, is a supplier for leading global brands such as Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, J. Crew and J. Jill.

A total of 6,000 workers are employed in the two manufacturing facilities in the Philippines; 75% (or 4,500) of these are women of reproductive age. Of the two companies, Hamlin was the first company to introduce modern family planning under the UNFPA’s Business Action for Family Planning (BAFP) project in 2015. Early this year (2017), NST started its family planning program at Reliance.

Hamlin Industrial Corporation has been in the manufacturing/exporting business for over 20 years, with current manpower of around 2,300, 76% female. In line with NST’s corporate statement, “committed to the improvement of the quality of life of our employees and the community”, the company is responding to the call to action to address the significant challenge in family planning today. Hamlin is implementing a workplace family planning program that includes awareness raising, access to commodities and service provision.

As part of capacity building, Hamlin partners with UNFPA, ECOP and Friendly Care to provide FP training for nurses, HR Staff and Peer Health Educators on Family Planning Modern Methods, Social Marketing and FP Counselling. The trained nurses conduct family planning lectures quarterly to raise the awareness of the workers on the different modern family planning methods. Two of the 12 trained nurses are trained FP trainers under the Business Action for Family Planning (BAFP) project and will be mentoring other nurses from BAFP Phase 2 partner companies during on site FP training. The trained nurses will also provide technical assistance to Reliance Apparel during their launching of FP program and FP activities and training sessions. Hamlin also incorporates FP learning session during Mother’s Class to prepare women to plan about FP even before giving birth.

As part of BAFP Phase 1 partner companies, Hamlin had been regularly conducting on-site FP counselling and services to their employees. To date, there are 123 women who received implants for free and 308 new users of modern methods.

2017 Update: The French strategy on population, sexual and reproductive health and rights sets out an ambitious agenda for transformative action. We are committed to: Improving normative frameworks through global advocacy; Increasing access to modern methods of contraception, and facilitating young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health services and reducing harmful practices. In order to achieve these goals, we will continue our multilateral funding and : maintain our French Muskoka Fund for reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health in 2018 (10 M EUR). It is a great example of inter-UN agency cooperation and its positive effects in the region have contributed to the improvement of maternal, child and adolescent health in the 8 beneficiary countries; strengthen existing partnerships between the French Development Agency and other donors in West and Central Africa (DEMSAN project, 10M EUR/4 years), and continue donor coordination through  the Ouagadougou Partnership; finance the 3rd season of C’est la Vie (3 M EUR); explore further funding opportunities in order to assist partner countries with their demographic transitions, for example Niger, where the AFD is considering developing a country programme.

2012: In 2011, France pledged to spend an additional €100 million on family planning within the context of reproductive health through to 2015, in nine countries in francophone Africa.

As part of Canada’s strong commitment to women’s and girls’ empowerment, gender equality and a feminist international agenda, Canada is taking a comprehensive approach to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all. Canada’s CAD 241.5 million commitment will fund initiatives from 2017 to 2022 that include support for programs that provide comprehensive sexuality education, strengthen reproductive health services, and invest in family planning and contraceptives. Canada will also support initiatives that prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence and child early and forced marriage, support the right to choose safe and legal abortion, and increase access to post-abortion care. Canada will focus in particular on addressing the rights and unique needs of adolescents and women and girls in humanitarian and fragile contexts with 65% of this commitment being directed to sub-Saharan Africa. By investing in demand-side interventions, Canada will empower women and adolescents to know the rights, services and information that they are entitled to as well as improve their access. Of Canada’s $241.5 million commitment, $166.5M will go towards initiatives focused on advancing adolescent SRHR. Canada is also committed to addressing the global data gap in adolescent SRHR, which is key for advancing gender equality and building a robust evidence-based for policies and programming. We are proud to be a signatory to the Global Adolescent Data Statement. We will join forces with others and pursue partnerships that engage the voice and participation of women and girls in our interventions, to leverage resources, fund an appropriate mix of contraceptive services, build momentum, ensure accountability, and set us on the path to achieving the ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals.‎

Iceland - Financial

This commitment reflects the government of Iceland's commitment to family planning and the sexual and reproductive health and rights sector.

Gender equality and women’s empowerment is a cornerstone of Iceland´s development cooperation, where sexual and reproductive health and rights, including family planning, are a key aspect. The importance of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights is highlighted in targets 3.7 and 5.6 of the SDGs and will be essential for reaching the other goals by 2030. In prolonged and complex humanitarian settings, women and girls are particularly vulnerable and the need for family planning services is highly intensified. Iceland commits to increase funding towards SRHR and strengthen its cooperation with bilateral and multilateral partners in the area of family planning. In Malawi, family planning will become one of the focus areas within the health sector of our programme in Mangochi-district for the period 2017-2021. We will partner with UNFPA for expertise and synergies to strengthen family planning efforts of the district authorities. In our partner districts in Uganda, we will collaborate with CSOs to increase and improve health information and services in primary schools through school health clubs that promote learning and discussions around SRHR. Furthermore, we will provide UNFPA in Syria with one million US dollars, paid over the next five years (2018-2022), with the aim of helping UNFPA to reach this highly vulnerable and marginalized population and allow women to have access to high-quality family planning services.

2017 Update: During the London Summit in 2012 FHC pledged to invest up to $14 million over the next six years into reproductive health and HIV/AIDS prevention education and training initiatives and award major public sector purchasers with FC2 Female Condoms equal to 5% of their total annual units purchased, at no cost to such purchasers. We have fulfilled the above pledge and wish to commit to a new pledge:Based on the procurement quantity of the purchasing country/or donor, the Female Health Company pledges to provide accompanying technical support free of charge, in the form of master training; educational materials; and demonstration models to ensure sustainable FC2 female condom programs in that particular country. The introduction of the FC2 female condom in a country needs significant additional support in demand creation, in the form of education, training, and (marketing) materials, in order to create sustainable programs in country and ensure uptake and use of the commodity. Female Health Company recognizes this need and as a social enterprise, hereby pledges to enter into a public private partnership with those purchasing/receiving countries of the FC2 female condom and take the responsibility for accompanying technical support based on the procurement number.

2012: Female Health Company—which manufactures, markets, and sells the FC2 female condom—commits US $1.65 million in savings per year for eight years based on a bonus of 5 percent of 60 million current public sector volume units worldwide (US $1.13 million in savings per year for eight years, 5 percent of estimated 41 million units annually in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia) in “no cost” product. The distribution of the bonus product will be at the public sector’s discretion and savings will increase as the public-sector volume increases. Additionally, Female Health Company will also invest US $14 million in training and education across six years.

Belgium’s commitment today is multi-annual core funding for UNFPA. In the next four years we will contribute 36 million euros. We opt for core funding because we strongly support the organization’s mandate and we believe their work in the field is extremely valuable. Belgium is an important contributor to the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF). We recently added 5 million euros to the original pledge of 20 million euros for 2017.  We consider this to be very softly earmarked money, as we committed to under the Grand Bargain. Belgium joins the call to action for the Global Roadmap for data, monitoring and accountability for Family Planning and Sexual and Reproductive Health in Humanitarian Crises. We are currently elaborating a project that will allow smarter investment in family planning. We will provide seed money to establish a data platform to continuously monitor access to family planning services in low income settings through the combination of routine health data, survey data, and big data sources such as high resolution satellite imagery, mobile phone and social media data.
