HP+ conducted this global landscape assessment to identify those family planning digital tools that seek to improve access to and use of family planning services through financially sustainable mechanisms. This document provides a summary of the state of digital tools for family planning, based on over 100 unique tools implemented in Africa and Asia over the past decade. It describes common characteristics of tools with a focus on three dimensions: (1) features linking users (current and potential) to providers of family planning products and services, (2) features allowing for payment or reimbursement of providers for products and services, and (3) features to overcome gender-related barriers to care. This assessment reveals a vibrant landscape leveraging a range of innovative technologies in various stages of implementation and scale-up. The next phase of this activity will explore in depth six tools identified through the landscape assessment to delve into greater detail on key considerations, challenges, and lessons learned during their design and implementation.
