Cover Image

Author(s): Elizabeth Leahy Madsen

Primary Language: English

Date: 8/31/2014


Ministries of health (MOHs) are largely responsible for achieving the commitments that their national governments have made as part of the FP2020 initiative, which aims to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. However, MOHs’ ability to meet FP2020 goals depends on the strength of their stewardship functions, including the support they generate from and collaboration with other actors and sectors.This brief describes four skills that parliamentarians can develop and strengthen to become more effective at lobbying for, demanding, and securing additional funding for FP. It is part of a series of three briefs produced by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project to provide guidance to MOH officials and members of parliament (MPs) on three different approaches to strengthen MOHs’ stewardship functions for FP2020. The other briefs in the series are Stewardship for FP2020 Goals: Working with the Private Sector, and Stewardship for FP2020 Goals: MOH Role in Improving FP Policy Implementation.
