Removing taxes for contraceptives in Madagascar

Options' story on 'Removing taxes for contraceptives in Madagascar' won International Budget Partnership (IBP) Network's implementation story contest.

6 May 2021

As more and more countries across the globe are implementing and scaling up High Impact Practices (HIPs) and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), projects and programmes are gaining valuable insights and lessons learned into what works for their local context. In an effort to share these experiences widely amongst the FP/RH community, the IBP Network hosted a contest calling for field-based programme implementation stories. Options’ implementation story on ‘Removing taxes for contraceptives in Madagascar: strategic advocacy leads to increased budget for family planning (FP)’ was selected among one of the 15 winning submissions.
