Planning, budgeting and expenditure of family planning under National Health Mission- A Review
Budget allocations for FP services are a good reflection of whether the FP programme is on the path to achieving national and international commitments on FP. An analysis of the budget allocation for FP services can help systematically examine and understand varied aspects of the budget process and track priorities in resource allocation across different family planning activities. the Population Foundation of India (PFI) undertook a study to understand the process of planning, allocations, releases and spending on FP activities under NHM and whether these are designed to achieve improved outcomes and aligned with the FP2020 goals. This study analyses the above for the last three financial years (FY) – 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17.
