42 The Programme of Action alludes, but does not specifically refer, to the "civil society". Definitions of the term "civil society" are diverse. For the purposes of this paper, civil society will be used to refer to non-state institutions (e.g., NGOs; community groups; professional associations; religious communities; the private (for-profit) sector; labour and trade unions; foundations; academic institutions; and women, men and youth groups) as well as individual members of society. Parliamentarians are unique in that they serve as bridges between the civil society and the governmental apparatus.

43 The Global Population Assistance Report is available on the Internet at http://www.nidi.nl/resflows.

44 Although such loans are usually counted as external assistance, a portion of them must be paid back by the recipient countries, so a large fraction of the total loans could really be counted as domestic allocations.

45 ODA is the funding originating from donor countries only, not multilateral or private sources.

46 The data provided for 1997 (and below for 1998) are preliminary and incomplete.

47 NGO expenditures, from their own income, are a very small proportion of the total compared to Government expenditures.

48 Estimates of expenditure per capita were calculated by subregion and then expanded to encompass the regions' entire populations.

49 The authors of the NIDI case-studies state that although the functional population categories used for measuring resource flows are based on paragraph 13.14 of the ICPD Programme of Action, reporting of allocations among the elements of reproductive health, family planning, and occasionally HIV/AIDS-prevention activities are not consistent across countries. The difficulty of allocating resource flows of the shared delivery system infrastructure between family planning and other reproductive health services was recognized in paragraph 13.15 of the Programme of Action, where a combined delivery system proportion was indicated.

53 This total expenditure figure does not include external assistance from the development banks.
