One major issue involved with expanding FP services is identifying direct and indirect costs of service delivery. Accordingly, the Gather, Analyze, and Plan (GAP) tool is being applied in the Amhara region of Ethiopia to understand what is needed to achieve the regional FP target set for the year 2020. GAP is a simple Excel-based tool developed by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) to help policymakers, ministry officials, and health officials understand the costs associated with expanding family planning to achieve national or regional contraceptive prevalence or fertility goals. Information is urgently needed to ensure that FP programs are fully funded as the shift in agenda and ownership takes place. The GAP tool allows countries to project funding gaps in contraceptives, service provision, and program support. In collaboration with the Amhara Regional Health Bureau and other partners, HPP organized a regional GAP workshop in June 2014.
