This grant will support Population Action International to partner with civil society organizations to provide funding and assist them in developing locally led and owned advocacy campaigns and strategies in support of more funding and better policies for family planning and reproductive health. Over five years, PAI will expand and deepen their advocacy work and partnerships, and further support the growth and development of strong civil society champions. It can also help the in-country advocacy organizations connect effectively with global-level processes and opportunities. PAI intends to focus on the in-country advocacy work in Zambia and Malawi, two of the priority countries identified in the current strategic plan.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of in-country advocacy partnerships
This grant will support Population Action International (PAI) to implement the Reproductive Health Advocacy Partnership (RHAP) in Zambia and Malawi. Through multiyear general operating support and sustained technical assistance, PAI partners with civil society organizations (CSOs) to invest in their institutional and advocacy capacity using a principled approach grounded in flexibility, shared learning, and mutual accountability. Through this approach, CSOs aim to advance sexual and reproductive health policies and funding at the country and regional levels. During the grant period, PAI and CSO partners seek to influence philanthropic practice by documenting and disseminating best practices from the RHAP model. (Substrategy: Local Advocacy)
for improving government accountability for family planning services and supplies in Africa
Population Action International (PAI) works to ensure universal access to quality reproductive health care, including family planning, around the world. This grant will support PAI’s work with civil society organizations in East and West Africa to test a common framework to track national spending in family planning in seven countries. PAI and its local partners will use this information in national and regional advocacy efforts to strengthen accountability of national governments for commitments they have made to improve the provision of these services.
