Under the Gender Policy and Measurement (GPM) activity, funded by the Asia and Middle East Bureaus of USAID, the Health Policy Project (HPP) hosted an expert meeting in December 2012 on experiences with scaling up best practices in family planning and maternal, neonatal, and child health. The meeting, held in Washington, DC, focused on gender integration and policy implementation in the scale-up of programs. Experts identified the gaps, priorities, and entry points for addressing gender and policy in scale-up. Initiatives to scale up programs aim to strengthen health systems and expand the reach of essential services to those who need them most.
