This policy brief is intended to guide Ugandan parliamentarians in addressing critical issues related to family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) financing to ensure that increased budget commitments for RH commodities already realized are sustained over the coming years and that funds are disbursed and fully expended. Parliamentarians at the country level can fulfill three essential functions: (1) provide oversight to ensure that current allocations are maintained, (2) ensure that allocated funds from the World Bank RH Systems Strengthening Project are released and spent in FY 2013/14, and (3) track allocations to ensure the 100 percent expenditure of funds.
