As countries aim to develop strategies for sustainably financing their family planning programs, they may benefit from “catalytic investments.” These are defined as an activity, program, or mechanism that leverages existing political, social, and financial opportunities to increase the likelihood that decisionmakers will raise domestic resource allocation or improve the execution of domestic resources. This guide is intended to help countries identify and implement catalytic interventions for domestic financing of family planning across four broad types of interventions: advocacy, capacity development, policy, and expansion of the market. A framework and examples are provided to help countries combine and apply different types of investments based on a family planning program’s unique characteristics as well as the country’s broader health financing system maturity.
