Kaiser Family Foundation: Donor Government Funding for Family Planning was Essentially Flat in 2015 in Real Terms, Though It Declined When Measured in Current U.S. Dollars

new Kaiser Family Foundation report finds that donor governments provided US$1.3 billion in bilateral funding for family planning programs in low- and middle-income countries in 2015, essentially matching 2014 levels in real terms (after accounting for exchange rate fluctuations and inflation). In current U.S. dollars, however, 2015 funding was 6 percent below the 2014 level, largely due to the appreciation of the U.S. dollar.
