Geographies indicate commitment to match resources (in-kind/cash), TCI provide technical assistance to design interventions using the URHI proven of concept to meet the unmet need of women of reproductive age. This model allows states to self-select themselves using the TCI’s Demand driven 3 stage process: Expression of Interest, program design and implementation of HII intervention in urban/peri-urban slums population. The Geographies clearly articulated planned activities to be funded with state, leverage and catalytic funds. Percentage distribution of funding commitment by the states to the overall total fund range between 13% to 44% and the leverage funds from other sources outside the TCI catalytic is between 0% to 7%. This is aside the creation FP budget line to sustain funding of the states FP blueprint.
