Donors Delivering

Introductory Message: We are pleased to present the latest edition of Donors Delivering for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), an important tool to support both European policymakers and advocates in the field to track funding for the full SRHR agenda. The analysis is based on the comprehensive SRHR definition published by the 2018 landmark report from the Guttmacher – Lancet Commission on SRHR, and on the updated Muskoka 2 Methodology developed by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

While several excellent expert reports exist to track funding for reproductive, maternal, and newborn health, family planning (FP), and gender, no methodology has thus far captured the full breadth of SRHR, especially the ‘rights’ aspect. Donors Delivering for SRHR brings a complementary approach with changes made to our previous Euromapping methodology. First of all, the current report tracks support to three elements relevant to SRHR – connected and not independent from each other:

  1. Reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) as SRHR is increasingly integrated into broader approaches, for which tracking is based on the revised Muskoka 2 methodology approved by donors and experts;
  2. FP, a subset of SRHR with a specific tracking based on percentages agreed at the 2012 FP2020 Summit; and finally,
  3. A tracking of sexual and reproductive rights (SRR) to highlight the importance of the support in particular from European donors, who politically support the whole SRHR agenda and do not report on specific elements of the full agenda.

All data is based on the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) database, reported by donors, publicly available, allowing for any interested party to crosscheck and use this methodology. It is a theoretical exercise whereby the same methodology is applied to all OECD donors, to enable comparison and to rank European funders against other donors.
