Zambian Advocates Win Big With New Budget Line for Reproductive Health Supplies

In January, the government of Zambia approved its first-ever budget line for reproductive health supplies, including contraceptives. The government allocated $9.3 million for fiscal year 2014 to supplies-a major achievement for Zambian reproductive health advocates.

Planned Parenthood Association of Zambia (PPAZ) was a leading voice in making the case for the budget line, with the help of a $50,000 advocacy grant from the Opportunity Fund, a flexible source of funding for family planning advocacy managed by PAI for Advance Family Planning. We talked with Edford G. Mutuma, Executive Director of PPAZ, about how they made the new budget line happen, what this victory means for women, and what comes next.
