FPSA

Family Planning Spending Assessment (FPSA) is a new method of tracking the flow of resources and expenditures for the implementation of family planning programming in a country. This method of tracking of FP expenditures considers resource flow of both financial and non-financial resources from their origin to the end point of service delivery, among the different institutions involved. Tracking is done from financing sources whether public, private or foreign; and among the different providers of services.

The assessment aims to answer the following questions:

  • Who pays for FP in the country?
  • Who manages the funds and up to what level?
  • Who provides the FP services?
  • What FP services were provided?
  • What are the inputs used (human resources, contraceptives, management, IEC, training and supervision, etc.)?

The results of the assessments provide estimates of expenditures on FP from government essential to:

  • inform global monitoring of spending on FP;
  • inform the resource gap analysis at national and county level by comparing available resources and resource needs based on the strategic and operational plans;
  • provide financial information that will inform policy dialogue,
  • help in planning and budgeting at the County level in order to strengthen the case for family planning within the County and National development agenda;
  • be used to advocate for increased funding for FP resources in counties and be used to monitor progress of policies in place by assessing whether expenditure is per priority areas.

A first phase of FPSA was conducted in Kenya, Senegal, Indonesia and Bangladesh in 2018 and 2018. Reports on these countries are available below.
