Despite clear evidence of demand for family planning within humanitarian crises, response efforts suffer from several challenges linked to funding. Further, there is ongoing debate around financing requirements to support larger and longer crises and the constantly evolving needs within the humanitarian sector. In light of these challenges, HP+ conducted a review of the humanitarian crisis response planning processes, cases, and associated literature to understand how family planning needs are managed and financed across humanitarian crisis contexts. This report presents critical challenges, key lessons learned, and possible opportunities to help improve financing for family planning as part of humanitarian response efforts. The family planning-humanitarian crisis response framework introduced in the report and the discussion of cases and issues can be applied to predict and address problems that affect access, quality, and financial protection for family planning services in future crises.
