What We Do
HP+ supports the achievement of Ouagadougou Partnership commitments and FP2020 pledges by supporting countries to develop and execute CIPs. We also support advocates’ efforts to contribute substantively to better health outcomes and help countries work toward respectful, rights-based family planning programs. Capacity building is at the core of our approach, with the aim of supporting Ministry of Health (MOH) staff to be stewards of the CIP process. With support from our preceding USAID-funded Health Policy Project, 15 countries developed national CIPs. In a continuation of this work under HP+, we
- Work in close collaboration with ministries of health and civil society partners to develop comprehensive, strategic, country-owned, national CIPs for family planning.
- Support ministries of health to execute their CIPs, providing the tools and capacity development for MOH family planning units to
- Take the lead in refining the CIP goals and objectives
- Set up systems to monitor indicators
- Communicate with and gain buy-in from key stakeholders, such as other government entities, donors, and implementing partners.
- Develop tools and approaches, in collaboration with other CIP experts, to facilitate the planning, development, and execution of CIPs. These tools address a range of topics from performance management, to mobilizing resources for CIP execution, to guidelines on how to conduct regular CIP strategy reviews.
