What We Do

Health Policy Project 



The Health Policy Project (HPP) is building capacity around the world for improved health policy, advocacy, governance, and finance with a focus on the following areas:


Family Planning and Reproductive Health

Sound policies are key to effective family planning and reproductive health programs. By applying proven policy processes and techniques, health program managers, national policymakers, parliamentarians, and civil society leaders can promote expansion and improvements in family planning and reproductive health services.

Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality are priorities for development programs throughout the world. HPP integrates gender in its family planning, reproductive health, HIV, and maternal health activities. We also provide technical leadership and build local capacity to translate the woman, girl and gender equality (WGGE) and PEPFAR gender principles into action.

HPP supports efficient and effective HIV responses and increases country ownership by building local capacity to direct, manage, and finance HIV programs. The project is committed to reducing inequities in health outcomes linked to factors such as poverty, gender, and stigma and discrimination.

HPP offers a wide range of techniques and tools that can support policy initiatives to improve maternal health. HPP promotes health system strengthening and capacity building to promote maternal health.
