Affordable Services

As the number of contraceptive users increases worldwide, growth is fastest among those least able to pay for services. The decrease in donor funding for many programs challenges programs to keep services affordable for everyone while ensuring that people are able to choose, obtain, and use high-quality contraceptives whenever they want them. Targeting free or subsidized family planning services to low-income users while encouraging people to pay what they can keeps services affordable for all clients. It also contributes to the financial sustainability of programs.

This section of the Elements of Family Planning Success Toolkit includes briefs, primers, and success stories outlining different financing strategies for family planning programs, such as health insurance programs, public-private partnerships, and vouchers.
