The Crosswalk of Family Planning Tools provides a comparison of 19 commonly used family planning costing, planning, and impact analysis tools. The Health Policy Project designed the guide to help advocates, program planners, decisionmakers, and others to (1) select which tool might best fit their goals or questions and (2) interpret the outputs of each tool. The guide contains information on each tool's overall goal; intended use; primary target audience; interventions included; unit costing approach (if applicable); and health, cost, economic, or demographic outputs. In addition, the guide compares the requirements for each tool related to data needs, training and skills, and usability.
The guide is accompanied by a chart to use as a quick reference for general information and comparison. To print the chart, 11 x 17 paper is required and "fit to page" and "landscape orientation" must be selected under printer properties.
