Funders and supporters

Over the years, our partners have channelled a proportion of their spending to improve the health of women and children through The Partnership. This has been reflected in the ongoing increases in The Partnership’s annual budget, rising from US$ 5.86 million in 2009 to US$ 14.74 million in 2013.

Since 2009, the Partnership has received funding from a number of donors. These have included the Governments of:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America, and
  • The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
  • MacArthur Foundation
  • The World Bank and
  • The Commission on Information and Accountability

Other partners have committed in-kind resources (e.g., staff time), and/or are in the process of approving funding arrangements.
