Family planning (FP) advocacy plays a key role in policy development. Despite a significant body of evidence-based advocacy promoting family planning, there are few systematic studies on decisionmakers’ opinions of such advocacy; how advocacy and evidence are used by decisionmakers; what types of evidence and advocacy are persuasive from the perspective of decisionmakers themselves; and how and why decisionmakers support FP policies. This USAID-funded Health Policy Project study was designed to address these issues. The findings draw from structured interviews in three countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, and Malawi.
