Core contributions are provided in support of an organisation's overall development activities and are disbursed at the discretion of the organisation and can therefore not be broken down into sectors.
Project specific funding is also delivered via Marie Stopes International, the UN Population Fund and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Consolidated records on the amount of project specific funding delivered via intermediary organisations are not held centrally.
No funding was provided to the British Pregnancy Advisory Service or the Family Planning Association (UK).
DFID does not promote abortion as a method of family planning. However, if a woman decides to have an abortion, she should be able to access care and services that are safe. Where it is legal, DFID works to ensure the saving of women's lives through abortion services that are safe. DFID also promotes awareness of unsafe abortion as a serious women's health issue.
