The Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) 2 Access Choice Together Innovate Ownership Now (ACTION), (WISH2Action) programme (2018-2023) in Malawi is being implemented by a consortium led by the Family Planning Association of Malawi (FPAM), Development Media International (DMI) and Options Consultancy Services Ltd. Options’ role in the project has been to build a supportive legal, financial and policy framework for sustainable family planning and a conducive environment for sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all women and girls to ensure they face fewer risks during pregnancy and childbirth.
In Malawi, the WISH programme has focused on advocating for an increase in domestic allocation to the government’s family planning (FP) budget line, which was created in 2013 in response to the Family Planning Summit 2020 in London1, This paper is aimed at documenting a summary of the programme’s technical approach and enabling factors for successful advocacy interventions to improve public sector investment for FP/SRH in Malawi.
