A CIP is a multi-year roadmap that identifies evidence-based strategies and approaches to improve FP programs, and estimates the cost of implementing those strategies. All components of an FP program—demand, service delivery and access, procurement and supply chain, policy and enabling environment, financing and resource mobilization, supervision, and monitoring and evaluation—are addressed and budgeted in the CIP. The approach to developing and executing CIPs varies across countries, as the plans align with ongoing initiatives and systems and address each country’s unique context. Each new CIP provides an opportunity to tailor technical assistance and tools to help countries achieve their goals, apply lessons learned, strengthen the CIP development process, and enhance the potential impact of the plans when executed.
The learnings and examples presented in this brief have been informed by the combined experience of the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) and Futures Group in supporting sixteen countries to develop and implement CIPs; and by the experiences of other technical assistance providers, donors, and governments who have shared their learnings through a variety of CIP expert consultations, interviews, and public events.
