Analysis of sexual and reproductive health and rights prioritization in select Global Financing Facility countries

The Global Financing Facility (GFF) is a mechanism aimed at catalysing the allocation of grant resources to scale up healthcare initiatives in low- and middle-income countries by leveraging domestic government resources, International Development Association and International Bank for Reconstruction and Development financing, aligned external financing, and resources from the private sector.

The case studies presented in this report describe how two countries, Mozambique and Niger, have engaged with the GFF, and how in these cases sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) were advanced within the broader framework of the GFF’s objectives. Drawing on insights and learnings from Mozambique and Niger, the report sets out a series of recommendations suggesting ways to improve the prioritization of SRHR and processes around it related to the development of GFF investment cases, that could be relevant and applicable in other settings.
