In this guide, HP+ introduces a framework that examines the integration of family planning in the legal, regulatory, and policy aspects of health financing arrangements aimed at achieving universal health coverage. The guide explains how to identify and examine whether policy instances enable or inhibit family planning’s integration into health financing reforms and schemes. A matrixed framework, which the guide is based on, relates health systems strengthening outcomes to the roles of health financing actors in regard to family planning financing. Lastly, the guide includes a checklist as a tool for users to (1) help countries identify policy instances relevant to family planning financing and (2) examine and analyze each policy instance for its positive or negative effect on family planning coverage, responsiveness, and financial protection.
