    • KfW has been contributing $1m annually and might continue until 2013

    • Private foundation supports $2m annually through 2010

  • In current USAID FP grant there is no commodity support (2007-2012). Assumption was that other donors would continue commodity support

  • Based on the principles of the Paris Declaration, in 2008 DFID replaced its commodity support to GreenStar by Budget Support.

Implications from july 2010
Implications from July 2010 last 7 years

  • Greenstar will face a stock out situation in mid 2010, unless new funding commitments are made by GOP or a donor

  • Due to lead times in procurement funding commitments need to be made in before the end of 2009

  • In the absence of new funding Greenstar will have to raise prices to cost recovery, making them unaffordable to lower income people

  • Greenstar CYPs may decline by up to 70%

  • Government CYPs may decline by 30%

  • 2 million couples currently using Greenstar contraceptives will no longer have access to them as the public sector system is not set up to cope with additional demand

  • GreenStar’s contribution to achieving the GOP goals are widely recognized

  • GreenStar has approached GOP in multiple ways to ensure continued funding of its commodity needs.

  • However, GOP has not yet made commitments to funding GS’s commodity requirements

What can be done
What can be done? last 7 years

National contraceptive security plan to incorporate NGO requirements

Donors to continue the dialogue with GOP to incorporate NGO commodity requirements into national need

Greenstar to conduct analysis on price increases and sustainability planning and mitigate impact on poor

Sector-wide Programs to include earmarks for contraceptive funding for public and NGO sector.

Ministry for Social Welfare to develop long term funding plan for contraceptives commodities for public and NGO sector and include this is National Strategic Plan

Potential reasons for slow response from gop
Potential reasons for slow response from GOP last 7 years

  • Reasons for GOP hesitation might be

    • Funds provided through Budget Support and Sector –wide programmes are competed by many interests

    • expectations that additional donor funds can be raised in the last moment,

    • Commitment to Contraceptive Security not widely enough shared outside Ministry of Population and Social Welfare

    • Political or religious pressure against Reproductive Health Rights

    • Others???
