Country advocacy is critical to holding governments accountable for their FP2020 commitments. Yet too often civil society organizations simply don’t have the resources to support their efforts. The Opportunity Fund is a flexible source of funding for family planning advocacy managed by PAI for Advance Family Planning. It helps CSOs seize advocacy opportunities to accelerate FP2020 and Ouagadougou Partnership successes. Learn more about our family planning advocacy efforts.
Investing in Zambia’s Health and Development
Family planning is one of the most cost-effective interventions to improve women’s health and wellbeing, reduce unintended pregnancies and prevent maternal, infant, and child mortality. Investments in family planning therefore have incredible potential to impact a country’s development trajectory.
Zambia Opportunity Fund partners, the Center for Reproductive Health and Education (CRHE) and Marie Stopes Zambia (MSZ) recently published a report highlighting the state of family planning and reproductive health in Zambia. The report measures success against Zambia’s FP2020 commitments and other development goals and highlights areas of needed progress.
