Comic Relief, the UK charity which aims to create a just world, free from poverty, will make a $6 million grant, in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to The Challenge Initiative (TCI). This funding will support TCI’s urban reproductive health work in sub-Saharan Africa. Voluntary family planning saves lives, empowers women to take charge of their bodies and plan their futures, and is one of the most cost effective ways to break the cycle of poverty – for families, communities, and for entire nations. Supporting and investing in TCI represents a pivotal opportunity to make a systemic and transformative impact on reproductive health for underserved urban poor communities, whilst also putting communities at the heart of leading positive change.

UPDATED July, 11, 2017--The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation commits an additional $375 million over four years, marking a 60% increase in our family planning funding. These new resources will build upon existing programming and will respond to the needs and aspirations of adolescents and youth, with $250 million of this new funding focusing on adolescents and youth specifically. We will work with partners to enhance adolescent girls’ agency, empowerment and decision-making, tackle the bias that young people face from service providers when they seek family planning services, and maximize new technology to improve the quality of information that women – especially adolescents – receive. We will invest to scale post-pregnancy family planning, including for young first-time mothers. And we commit to funding and promoting gender and age-disaggregated data to track progress in reaching adolescents and youth with information and services. Additionally, we will commit funding to a financing mechanism that will enable UNFPA to procure contraceptives more efficiently and at better value. We will co-finance the establishment of a “Visibility and Analytics Network” to provide better insight into contraceptive commodity availability; and support strengthening of global and country contraceptive supply chains. We will incentivize domestic financing for family planning programs, invest to reduce the price of innovative contraceptives and commit to making a broader range of contraceptives available to women and girls. Read additional details about the commitment here.

 

UPDATED Nov. 12, 2015--The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation committed to invest an additional $120 million dollars in family planning programs over the next three years--a 25% increase on its current family planning funding.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation commits to spending this additional funding will focus on three priority areas that data demonstrate potential for significant progress:

  • Improving the quality of services and the range of contraceptive options that women receive;
  • Reaching the most marginalized with contraceptives and services, particularly the urban poor;
  • Supporting the work of local advocates who are making the case for budgets, policies, and programs that ensure more women and girls can access contraceptives.

 

July 11, 2012--The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation commits to investing more than US $1 billion to help reach the goal of providing 120 million additional women with contraceptives, information and services by 2020.  That means doubling its investment in family planning from US $70 million a year to US $140 million a year for eight years—totaling an additional US $560 million. The foundation believes that supporting family planning is one of the most cost-effective investments a country can make in its future.
