Blended finance—the strategic use of public and philanthropic resources to mobilize private capital for development outcomes—can be used to jump-start and advance solutions to address challenges in family planning financing. In this brief, HP+ explores important donor considerations for evaluating potential blended finance opportunities. Discussion includes types of investors to target for partnership, types of blended structures to apply, and the donor financing required to catalyze private investment. The brief also weighs the pros and cons of investing in health funds and highlights several investment opportunities with potential to expand the use of family planning and primary healthcare in low- and middle-income countries, while generating a viable market return for investors.
