Abstract:

ImpactNOW, a new family planning advocacy model, generates evidence to make the case for immediate FP investments by modeling gains in maternal and child deaths averted, unintended pregnancies, and financial savings to the healthcare system as a result of FP uptake. ImpactNOW is currently being pilot-tested in Ethiopia's Amhara Region. On August 27, 2013, the Health Policy Project held a one-day stakeholders meeting to introduce ImpactNOW, provide a live demonstration of the model, and obtain feedback and impressions of it from family planning stakeholders, advocates, and policymakers. Stakeholders included representatives from the Amhara Regional Health Bureau (ARHB), the Regional Finance and Economic Development Bureau (BoFED), university partners, and nongovernmental organizations. Their primary focus in applying ImpactNOW will be the linkage between FP uptake and maternal and child deaths.
