DSW and EPF focus their advocacy and development work on protecting the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of individuals in precarious situations across the world. This annual publication analyses and ranks the latest updated data available to track the disbursements of members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s, Development Assistance Committee (DAC) to SRHR, reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH), and family planning (FP), as part of their Official Development Aid (ODA).
2021 REPORT KEY FINDINGS
This year‘s edition assesses the latest available data, which is from 2019. The analysis highlights similar unexpected rankings as seen in last year’s edition, where larger countries and donors are not necessarily spending more in relative terms; showing a lack of political prioritisation, a stabilisation and stagnation of funding for SRHR.
The top five SRHR donors as a percentage of total ODA in 2019 were the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, the UK, and Iceland, outperforming larger countries.
It seems that the countries that are furthest away from reaching the longstanding UN target for developed countries to give 0.7% of their GNI as ODA are also those who prioritise SRHR the least in their ODA.
