From May through July 2015 HPP conducted a financial gap analysis of CIPs in six West African countries: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Mauritania, Niger, and Togo. This allowed HPP to compare the annual funding available from the government and partners for family planning relative to each of the CIP budgets. In this study, “funding available” can be defined as any future funding that is promised, expected or estimated to be allocated to FP; in the case of past years, “funding available” refers to actual funds spent on FP, excluding overhead costs. The CIP Gap Analysis Tool, developed by Futures Group, was used to estimate additional resources needed to fully implement each thematic area identified in the CIP (contraceptive commodities, demand creation, service delivery and access etc.).
