Session: Tools and Approaches to Financial Sustainability for Reproductive Health Programs
3306.0: Monday, December 12, 2005: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Tools and Approaches to Financial Sustainability for Reproductive Health Programs
The session will introduce attendees to the wide range of approaches that are being used to help developing country organizations achieve greater financial sustainability. Broadly, the approaches include planning tools, financing options, and operations research studies focused on increasing program revenues. Each approach will be illustrated by an actual reproductive health program case study.
Learning Objectives: By the end of the session, attendees will understand that achieving financial sustainability requires more than one type of activity. Loans, income generation, cost control, and cost recovery activities may all be needed for a given organization to make significant progress towards financial sustainability.
