The Global Financing Facility (GFF), a financing mechanism in support of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, is currently active in 16 focus countries. In September, the GFF launched the first replenishment for its Trust Fund with a funding target of USD 2 billion. If reached, this will allow for an expansion of the GFF to another 34 countries over the 2018-23 period. This briefing sets out IPPF’s recommendations on the GFF ahead of the 6th Meeting of the GFF Investors Group, which will be held in Maputo, Mozambique, from 7-9 November 2017.
