2017 Update: The Commission provides 20m EUR to UNFPA Supplies in 2017-2018, building up on its previous commitments (32.6 million EUR committed at the first Family Planning Summit). There is more to come. Sexual and reproductive health and rights are an integral part of commitments to Gender equality as also reflected in our Gender Action Plan that is now being rolled out, with concrete and successful actions and adequate funding, including of course better access to family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights in general. We will be making an announcement on this initiative soon.
2012: The European Commission commits to an additional US $28.3 million to family planning services in 2013.
The Commission is pleased to report that the pledge made in the Summit has been fully achieved and in fact exceeded: EUR 28 million has been committed to a call for proposals on promoting universal access to reproductive health including family planning. Contracts with 6 selected beneficiaries from this call are currently being signed for actions that will run up to 3 to 5 years.
Another contract has been signed and fully disbursed (UNFPA Global Programme for RHCS) for EUR 8.3 million.
The total realised EU contribution to the Summit pledge is therefore EUR 36.3 million.
