The GFF is committed to transparency and accountability. Results measurement is driven by a logic model that serves as the framework for systematically measuring and reporting on how GFF-supported investments under country-led investment cases contribute to better health outcomes for women, children, and adolescents.
The model i) reports on national results to show how country-led programs and strategies supported by the GFF partnership are collectively delivering better health outcomes; and ii) monitors how GFF-specific investments link to the larger country-led impact to show how the GFF is delivering on its promise.
A platform for accessing GFF partner country data to monitor progress and inform policy decisions for the health and nutrition of women, children, and adolescents.

At the national level, couple years of protection (CYP)—the estimated protection provided by contraceptive methods during a one-year period—have more than doubled from 2.2 million in 2015 to 4.7 million in 2021.
