Advocacy & Awareness

A recent change in Indonesia’s laws enables leaders in the smallest government unit— villages—to assume greater responsibility and control over local affairs. In January 2014, the Indonesian government issued a new law stating that village leaders have the authority to manage their own village budget, usually about US $28,000 per village per year. Family planning advocates in Indonesia are using this change as an opportunity to finance new activities to improve access to family planning information, services, and supplies. In 2015, the first year the funds were available, more than 1,000 villages in seven districts allocated funds for family planning. Although village contributions often seem small, ranging from $75 to $500 per village, it is usually the first time village leaders are investing in family planning using their own funds. With the support of local stakeholders, village leaders are using the funds to revive community-based family planning program.
