The overall group income of IPPF has risen by US$3.1 million (3%) to US$102.4 million (2016: US$99.2 million). Unrestricted total income rose by US$4.1 million and restricted income fell by US$1.0 million.
IPPF’s main source of funding is government grants, which account for 82% (2016: 79%) of total income. In 2017 unrestricted government funding increased by US$1.4 million (2%) to US$67.4 million. The main reason for the increase was the increase in funding from the Scandinavian countries (Norway US$9.1 million, Sweden US$ 4.8 million and Denmark US$ 4.0 million) to assist in bridging the funding gap caused by the impact of the Global Gag Rule and the loss of UK government funding.
Restricted government funding amounted to US$16.8 million, up from US$12.1 million in 2016. The Government of Australia continued to provide support (US$3.6 million) in relation to the global SPRINT Initiative to provide sexual and reproductive health services to crisis and post crisis areas in South East Asia, the Paci c, South Asia, and Africa and to help fund our Fiji office which supports Paci c MAs. USA provided US$6.7 million of funding for a number of programmes. The Government of Japan provided US$1.8 million for work on integration of SRHR and HIV and AIDS and humanitarian assistance for internally displaced people in Syria and refugees in Jordan and Lebanon.The Government of Germany US$0.2 million to improve access to promote sexual reproductive health services in Syria and to displaced persons in Sudan.
The governments of the Netherlands, Norway and an anonymous donor also provided funding of US$3.7 million to the Safe Abortion Action Fund.
Grants from multilateral donors and other sources decreased by 24% from US$20.6 million to US$15.8 million. A signifcant factor in the decrease was US$3.1 million from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, US$2.7 million UN Programme on HIV/AIDS and US$0.4 million from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation as some current projects came to an end.
