    Washington, D.C., U.S. Government, 1974 May 1. 5 p.

    A meeting was held among personnel from UNICEF, WHO, IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation), and UNFPA (United Nations Fund for Population Activities. The meeting was held to determine and coordinate funding aspects of family planning supply programs. UNFPA agreed to fund OCs (oral contraceptives), condoms, Depo-Provera, spermicides, IUDs, and abortion equipment for UNICEF programs. It was mentioned that AID (the U.S. Agency for International Development) supplies most of the contraceptives needed for IPPF activities. WHO sets standards and prepares lists of acceptable contraceptive supplies. The UNFPA funding called for $2 million for OCs, $1 million for condoms, and much lesser amounts for the other types of contraceptives.
