In 2012, Sweden made its first family planning commitment by pledging to spend US$40 million per year on contraceptives and increase its annual contribution of US$450 million to MDGs 4 and 5. In 2017, the government of Sweden revitalized its family planning commitment, increasing its global sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) support by an additional US$24 million. Sweden also increased contributions to UNFPA, WHO, and UNESCO. Meanwhile, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) allocated an extra US$1.4 million to SRHR and increased funding to civil society organizations, including IPPF, International HIV/AIDS Alliance, and IPAS. Sweden took the lead in organizing the She Decides conference - the beginning of a global movement for girl's and women's access to education and information about her body, modern contraception, and safe abortion.
