To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the progress of the UN Population Fund Supplies programme.

Baroness Anelay of St Johns

As with all programmes in which DFID invests, the UNFPA Supplies programme is subject to thorough Annual Reviews, which were conducted in December 2014 and again in December 2015. The programme has expanded from 12 to 46 focus countries and has been found to be achieving value for money in procurement of contraceptive commodities. The recommendations from these Annual Reviews are being taken forward with UNFPA.
