This publication focuses on new research to estimate the costs associated with achieving UNFPA's three transformative results by 2030: ending preventable maternal deaths; ending the unmet need for family planning; and ending gender-based violence and all harmful practices, including child marriage and female genital mutilation. This study on small island developing States will inform actions to accelerate achievement of these transformative results. Focused on countries in the Pacific and the Caribbean, it presents evidence for governments on how to prioritize health system interventions amid the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the years to follow. This investment case emphasizes scaling up maternal health interventions to reach national targets and reduce maternal mortality, as well as empowering women by reducing high levels of unmet need for family planning through increased investment in high-quality, rights-based contraceptive services.
