2017 Update: CIFF’s strategic plan from 2017 to 2021 commits us to working with others to shape an AIDS-free generation where every adolescent can realise their sexual and reproductive rights with access to the information and services they need. Since January 2017 we have more than doubled our funding for sexual and reproductive health with new investments totalling $72 million. Our work is focused on putting adolescents at the centre of the design of SRH programmes; increasing choice with different types of contraception that respond to teenagers’ preferences, especially user-controlled choices; digital innovations to better connect young people with more accountable services; and amplifying youth voices within debates on the issues that affect them most.

Looking to the future, CIFF investments will be more targeted, bolstering what works best, reducing unit costs and tackling taboos head on. Specifically: (1) We will build a community of practice on human-centred design to inject urgency into changing the way adolescent SRH programmes and sex education is delivered; (2) We will strengthen country leadership and capacity to deliver on their commitments to adolescents, through country-driven technical assistance and results-based financing, within our broader investments; (3) We will be an exemplar for integration, maximising ways to layer user-controlled contraception, HIV prevention and safe abortion or post-abortion care; (4) We will continue to invest in measurement, capturing age and sex-disaggregated data across our SRH programmes; (5) Above all, we will be a better ally to young people, maximising youth leadership, youth-led accountability and participation in decision-making processes including within our own organisation.

2012: The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) enthusiastically supports the goals set by the London Summit on Family Planning as integral to the broader program of support to the UN Secretary General’s Every Women Every Child initiative. In conjunction with the global family planning initiative, CIFF will pursue landscaping and develop an action plan in the area of reproductive health with the intention of contributing strategically, tangibly, and at scale to further the aims of Family Planning 2020. The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation provides both funding and human resources to ensure greater accessibility of long-acting and reversible methods of contraception and will continue its work to enable women and governments to acquire these products at affordable prices.
