This document proposes a framework that synthesizes how different provider payment mechanisms may influence the implementation of a rights-based approach to family planning programs. It focuses on four provider payment mechanisms—line-item budgets, fee-for-service, capitation, and performance-based financing—so that stakeholders responsible for designing and implementing provider payment mechanisms for the provision of family planning services can consider, monitor, and address their potential impact on rights-based outcomes. In addition to the framework, the document summarizes the 10 key components of the rights-based approach to family planning, strategic health purchasing and provider payment methods in the context of family planning, and recommendations for technical staff in charge of designing and implementing provider payment mechanisms for family planning programs.
