Evaluation and Learnings from Family Planning Investments is a project that aims to generate evidence on the effectiveness and impact of family planning investments in India from both the public and private health sectors.
The project is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and is geared toward enabling both the government and the Foundation to make informed, evidence-based programmatic decisions and plan for the future.
The aim of the project is to evaluate, assess and learn from BMGF investments to build knowledge on family planning (FP) through primary, as well as secondary data analysis.
There were five broad objective of the grants:
ICRW, in collaboration with Population Council and IPE Global, conducted an evaluation of family planning programming in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar to examine what works, for whom, to what extent, in what contexts and how, and to provide direction to future investments. It included evaluation of investments made into the public and private health sectors and also focused on capacity building at the institutional and individual level, particularly in working with young professionals.
