Welcome to the USAID-funded Health Policy Plus project website.

FP/RH

Overview

HP+ is moving forward in an environment in which family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) policy is changing rapidly. The emergence of Family Planning 2020 (FP2020, a global partnership launched in 2012), the Global Financing Facility, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) all provide new opportunities to strengthen governmental commitments, increase investments, and enhance accountability with regard to FP programming. Providing technical assistance to support the development and effective execution of costed FP implementation plans is one area in which HP+ continues to lead the field. We also work to incorporate family planning into the universal health coverage (UHC) plans that many countries are now, or soon hope to be, creating. Our goal is to ensure that these plans incorporate equitable access to FP information and services—especially for underserved groups such as youth. International adoption of the SDGs provides yet another opportunity for us to advocate with national leaders regarding the direct links between population and development, and the vital role that family planning plays in achieving those goals.
