Countdown 2015 Europe report “European Support to Reproductive Health and Family Planning: Trends Analysis for 2014-2015”
One of the core functions of the Countdown 2015 Europe partners is to collect financial data on their governments’ official development assistance (ODA) to reproductive health and family planning.
Though European policy and financial commitment to reproductive health and family planning (RH/FP) is strong, overall policy context for ODA is worrying – says C2015E report analysing European donor financial and policy support to RH/FP in 12 European donor countries for 2014-2015.
In 2015, European countries continued to firmly support RH/FP through their policy commitments. This contributed to RH/FP featuring prominently within the Sustainable Development Goals. Several European countries have released policy documents and development cooperation laws with a strong reference to increasing access to family planning and ensuring 120 million additional women and girls have access to contraceptives by 2020.
