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.
