All of the £100 million announced at the Women Deliver conference in 2007 was committed to the United Nations Population fund (UNFPA) Global Reproductive Health Commodity Security Programme. The programme supports governments in Africa and in South Asia to provide more contraception services and better health care and advice for girls, women and men who really need it. To date £25 million has been transferred to UNFPA as per the agreed payment schedule.
