In most Family Planning 2020 countries, resource mobilization is a fundamental stumbling block to fully implementing their costed implementation plan (CIP) for family planning and achieving national family planning goals. One relatively new source of funding is the Global Financing Facility (GFF), which aims to leverage domestic and donor funds with complementary GFF Trust Fund and World Bank financing. The GFF supports eligible countries to develop investment cases, which describe country-selected, evidence-based priorities to help accelerate progress toward achieving their reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH-N) goals. Family planning stakeholders are increasingly learning how best to engage in the GFF process as a way to include family planning interventions as priorities in the investment cases. HP+ recently conducted a review of several countries’ CIPs and GFF RMNCAH-N investment cases to examine how family planning priorities were reflected in each and interviewed stakeholders to understand how they were involved in the GFF process. This document reflects the findings from the review and shares recommendations for key actions on how to best harmonize priorities for family planning across and in the development of both the GFF investment case and CIP.
