This funding would allow Population Action International to continue to promote universal access to family planning and reproductive health services through research, advocacy, and innovative partnerships. Its current ten-year strategic plan aims to (1) double annual funding for family planning and reproductive health services in low-income countries to more than $25 billion by 2022 and (2) establish a supportive policy environment for these services. The organization has set three-year organizational priorities to expand its global advocacy program to deepen its impact in priority countries, and to increase funding and advance supportive policies from donor governments and agencies in at least two focus countries. During this grant period, it also plans to build a communications infrastructure to support its program and advocacy agenda.
