To generate evidence to support Kenya’s investment in family planning and motivate elected leaders and decisionmakers at the national and county levels to act, Kenya’s National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) and the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) applied the ImpactNow policy model. The Microsoft Excel–based model uses different scenarios to quantify the short-term health and economic benefits of family planning. Since most existing models focus on the long-term gains of increased family planning uptake, ImpactNow fills an important knowledge gap in family planning policy and advocacy.
