Kitui County in Kenya Allocates $161,500 to Family Planning
Kitui County in Kenya allocated US $161,529 for family planning in its 2015/16 budget. This is the first time the county has included a specific budget line for family planning. Advance Family Planning (AFP) partner Jhpiego Kenya and Kyeni Foundation, an Opportunity Fund recipient, led the advocacy to allocate funding for family planning, working with the county’s family planning technical working group. The Opportunity Fund, managed by PAI with funding from AFP, is a small grants program that helps advocates seize opportunities to accelerate Family Planning 2020’s success at district, state, national, and regional levels.
