The GAP Tool: A Guide to Assessing the Funding Needed to Achieve Family Planning Goals—Version 1.2
Cover Image

Author(s): Health Policy Project

Primary Language: English

Date: 7/25/2014


This manual provides the user with step-by-step instructions to apply the GAP Tool (Gather, Analyze, and Plan). The GAP Tool is a simple Excel-based tool to help policymakers, ministry officials, health officials, and advocates understand and plan for the costs associated with expanding family planning to achieve their country's contraceptive prevalence or fertility goals. The two main outputs produced by the tool are the country’s funding gaps for a national family planning program and for family planning commodities. 

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) supported development of the GAP Tool through the USAID | Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1, and continues to support work on the tool, as well as this manual, through the Health Policy Project.
