Abstract:

In 2013, the Health Policy Project conducted a series of trainings for government leaders, local media, and other stakeholders in Jordan. The effort aimed to highlight the importance of policy in strengthening family planning programs to advance the health of Jordanians. The first workshop focused on HPP's policy framework, which links family planning policy to health outcomes. The team

  • Presented global initiatives that affect family planning and discussed how they relate to Jordan
  • Presented new advances in health policy analysis—linking health policy, health systems, and health outcomes
  • Discussed policy analysis, from problem identification to impact assessment
  • Built capacity for policy
  • Discussed FP policy issues in Jordan, including barriers to FP

The second workshop, held at the request of Jordan's Higher Population Council, focused on examining the framework in the context of the country's Demographic Opportunity Policy. Challenges and recommendations in meeting the goals of the policy were discussed, followed by the identification of which aspects of the framework could be applied to help implement those recommendations. The next step is to identify the appropriate authority to ensure implementation and coordination of follow-up efforts.
