Call for Resources



We want to hear from you! The High Impact Practices in family planning are designed to help connect FP/RH professionals to family planning practices that have demonstrated impact. But once best-practices are identified, diverse challenges regarding implementation and scale-up remain. In a recent analysis, we identified an expressed need from the FP/RH professional community for additional supportive tools to aid in the implementation and scale-up of the HIPs, and to respond — we need your help!

The ask: Are you working in the field of family planning and reproductive health, and using one or more of the High Impact Practices in your work? If so, we want to know what resources have been helpful for you in implementing and scaling up these practices, and that would be applicable across regions for your FP/RH colleagues around the globe. To contribute resources, please complete the submission form available at the link here

Please note: The open comment period ends on May 5, 2023



Seeking HIP Technical Experts 


The High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIP) Partnership is looking for technical experts to be part of groups to update the HIPs briefs on Mobile Outreach Services and Community Health Workers. Experts are also sought to write two new briefs on: Self-care for Family Planning and Task sharing for Family Planning.
Each expert will serve as a volunteer on a small team to work on one HIP brief over a one year period. The members of the technical expert groups work with a writer who, with guidance and input from the experts, writes the brief.  Details on the brief development process can be found here.

Please note: Applications are due May 5, 2023.
