Family Planning High Impact Practices
High Impact Practices (HIPs) are a set of evidence-based family planning practices vetted by experts against specific criteria and documented in an easy-to-use format. HIPs help programs focus resources for greatest impact.
HIPs are identified based on demonstrated magnitude of impacton contraceptive use and potential application in a wide range of settings. Consideration is also given to other relevant outcome measures including unintended pregnancy, fertility, or one of the primary proximate determinants of fertility (delay of marriage, birth spacing, or breast feeding). Evidence of replicability, scalability, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness are also examined.
