Population Action International (PAI) is a nonprofit organization that advocates for policies that ensure women’s reproductive health and rights and well-being. This grant is for a project to evaluate whether the tracking of public financial resources for family planning products and services has led to strengthened budget advocacy and in turn, any changes to government spending on family planning in Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. Learning from this evaluation will be shared across PAI’s partner network and with practitioners in the reproductive health and transparency, participation, and accountability fields.
