USAID’S Partnership With The Global Financing Facility

Speeches Shim

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is committed to supporting countries on their journey to self-reliance, recognizing the importance of strengthening local institutions, addressing equity in access to health services, and developing sustainable financing for well-functioning health systems that are able to address the health needs of their populations.

Over 5.5 million mothers and children die every year from causes that could be prevented with access to quality and cost-effective services.

There is currently a $33 billion annual financing gap for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) services. USAID works through multiple channels and approaches to help diversify funding for maternal and child survival and reduce this global funding gap. One way is through its support to the Global Financing Facility (GFF), in support of Every Woman Every Child.
