The Family Planning CIP Costing Tool helps countries understand the costs associated with implementing the detailed roadmap of FP activities outlined in their family planning costed implementation plan (CIPs). This tool was developed to both standardize the CIP costing approach across countries and streamline a sometimes complex process to make it easier for countries to revise inputs as commitments and implementation strategies are updated. The tool is Excel-based and includes pre-loaded equations, making it easier and quicker for new users to generate data.
The tool can be used at the national level—and at subnational levels where lower-level CIPs have been developed—to help policymakers, decisionmakers, partners, and donors better plan and advocate for an effective FP strategy.
The Family Planning CIP Costing Tool was developed as part of the CIP Resource Kit, and is meant to be used in conjunction with the The Family Planning CIP Gap Analysis Tool. The CIP Resource Kit can be accessed at http://www.familyplanning2020.org/cip. The CIP Costing Tool User Guide provides step-by-step instructions for applying the tool.
