Suggested criteria for FP projects include, community concern, prevalence, seriousness of unmet need, and manageability, but with external collaboration, consideration should be given to whether domestic resources are insufficient, the priorities of potential donors, expected problems with compliance with the grant, and government commitment to the project. External collaboration can take the form of moral support, technical cooperation, or financial support. The nature of the project as well as the expected achievements of the project need to be identified. Resources may be manpower, facilities, commodities, money, and/or time.

Support which began in 1961 has reached over 16 million dollars cumulatively. At present about 25% of support for FP comes form IPPF. The author's experience as a representative of PPFK to IPPF and other groups is described.
