The responsibility for increasing access to voluntary, quality family planning services often falls on subnational governments. Challenges include generating new funding, supporting political will, ensuring quality and timely data, advocating for policy changes at the subnational level, engaging with the community, and strengthening advocacy. HP+ developed a questionnaire to help subnational governments strengthen the enabling environment for voluntary family planning. The questionnaire looks at components of the family planning enabling environment most relevant for subnational levels of government—political support, leadership and management, finance, accountability, evidence-based planning and implementation, and community engagement—so that local actors have the knowledge and evidence to take concrete steps toward improving those components.
