SPS conducted an initial assessment of the existing regulatory mechanisms and systems for food and medicinal products with the goal of proposing options and approaches for a well-developed regulatory framework. The assessment team interviewed 24 stakeholders related to food and medicine regulation (7 food-specific, 6 medicines-specific, and 11 related to both). 

The MoPH established the National Medicines and Food Board (NMFB) in 2009, as a multidisciplinary body to oversee and catalyze regulatory activities in medicines and food products.

Governments in the developing world pay for between 63 and 75 percent of all family planning costs, international donor agencies pay for between 15 and 20 percent, and the clients themselves pay for between 10 and 17 percent of the costs of services [Lande and Geller 1991].

Supervision is so important to getting things done that most family planning organizations have developed a formal supervisory structure staffed with "supervisors" to help them ensure that activities are supervised. These "supervisors" work alongside managers who also perform their own supervisory activities on a day-to-day basis.

Governments and donor organizations are eager to support program initiatives that create new family planning services, or expand existing services to reach underserved populations. Funders are interested in a wide variety of new initiatives, such as adolescent services, mobile clinics in rural areas, in-school information, education, and communication (IEC) programs, and many others.
