Ethiopia’s family planning program has made significant progress over the past two decades with the number of modern contraceptive users increasing ten-fold. However, the country is facing flattening and potentially declining financial support for family planning from development partners. In this report, HP+ examines Ethiopia’s prospect for achieving adequate, sustainable domestic financing for family planning. A three-part framework that considers family planning clients, providers, and payers was developed and applied to present a range of potential financing options and mechanisms, particularly within the context of health financing reforms in support of Ethiopia’s efforts to achieve universal health coverage. Overall, the analysis finds that Ethiopia can make significant progress toward achieving sustainable, domestic financing of family planning and provides specific policy and programmatic recommendations for doing so.
