The question has been answered covering the past three years instead of 10 years due to the time it would take to gather historical data. DFID provided £1.06 million to Marie Stopes International (MSI) in 2010-11; in 2011-12 MSI received a £4.35 million Programme Partnership Arrangement (PPA) grant plus an additional £4.7 million of other DFID funding; in 2012-13 MSI received £4.35 million of PPA funding plus an additional £16.8 million of other DFID funding. International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) received £9 million of PPA funds in 2010-11, £8.6 million of PPA funds in 2011-12 and £8.6 million of PPA funds in 2012-13. DFID provided United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with £20 million each year for the period 2010-11 to 2012-13.

Details of further historical funding can be found in Table 18 and 19 of the Statistics on International Development (SID) which are available in the Library of the House.
