To attain sustainable financing for family planning (FP), we must go beyond the focus on incremental increases in annual budget allocations and take advantage of financing mechanisms that are designed to achieve Universal Health Coverage

Leveraging health insurance to increase financing for FP involves a long-term process and there are some steps to go through before it will translate into increased coverage. We have succeeded in advocating for the inclusion of FP in the benefit package and now that the scheme has been launched, we need to continue to support roll out so that the scheme is fully operationalised, and it translates into increased access among the underserved.
