Abstract:

For a country to successfully achieve its family planning goals and targets, stakeholders must fully understand the investment needed to attain them. The Health Policy Project, in collaboration with Ghana's National Population Council, recently reviewed data on demographic patterns, family planning costs, and projected funding to inform an application of the GAP (Gather, Analyze, and Plan) Tool. The tool is designed to project the contraceptive, service provision, and program support funding gaps in a country to ultimately help policymakers, decisionmakers, and development partners understand the costs involved in reaching national family planning goals and addressing challenges to progress. This presentation and brief summarize the current policy environment in Ghana for family planning, the targets set by the National Population Policy, and the gap in current and estimated resources needed. These evidence-based advocacy materials aim to bolster financial and political support for the family planning program in Ghana.
