The Government of Ghana in 2012 included family planning commodities and services in the benefit package of the National Health Insurance Scheme and thus the need to assess the cost. The analysis in this report focuses on costing family planning services provided in the National family planning protocol of 2007 which are currently being delivered in health facilities and NGOs in Ghana. The objective of the study was to determine the unit cost (direct and indirect) of providing family planning services in Ghana and also project the resource requirements for scaling up family planning services in Ghana from 2012 to 2016.
