The Family Planning Financing Roadmap is a resource for USAID Mission staff and others working on family planning issues in developing countries. The website is designed to support sustainable family planning approaches for a wide range of users, from those who have very limited knowledge of health financing concepts to those who have some knowledge or experience and are looking to develop a deeper understanding of specific issues.
The website has four main sections: an interactive roadmap, resource library, learning materials, and a community of practice.
The interactive roadmap aims to identify relevant family planning financing options given a particular country’s context, and to provide more tailored learning for the user. Users will click through several screens to assess the family planning financing situation in one of 63 countries, and will be asked to review both quantitative and categorical information that is pre-loaded in the roadmap system. The roadmap generates a custom report recommending relevant family planning financing options for the selected country.
The resource library houses a myriad of health financing documents that registered users upload. These resources range from national health financing policies to analyses of Costed Implementation Plans, covering topics such as health insurance, strategic purchasing, and universal health coverage.
The learning materials include:
Information on health financing concepts - including broad topics such as universal health coverage and specific topics such as performance-based financing – and how they relate to family planning
A glossary of health financing terms
A page dedicated to country-specific family planning financing resources.
The community of practice message boards enable community members to request and share information about family planning financing and related topics.
This website is maintained by the USAID-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) Project. HP+ strengthens and advances health policy priorities at global, national, and subnational levels and aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy design, implementation, and financing.
