This document is intended to lead program managers, planners, and policymakers through a strategic process to determine if and how task sharing family planning (FP) services can be used to help achieve development goals. Task sharing is defined as the systematic redistribution of family planning services, including counseling and provision of contraceptive methods, to expand the range of health workers who can deliver services (WHO, 2017). Task sharing is a safe, effective, and efficient means to improve access to voluntary sexual and reproductive health services and reach national FP goals. …more

We are pleased to announce the latest HIP Strategic Planning Guide on Task Sharing Family Planning Services to Increase Health Workforce Efficiency and Expand Access http://www.fphighimpactpractices.org/guides/task-sharing-family-planning-services/

Task sharing is defined as the systematic redistribution of family planning services, including counseling and provision of contraceptive methods, to expand the range of health workers who can deliver services (WHO, 2017). Task sharing is a safe, effective, and efficient means to improve access to voluntary sexual and reproductive health services and reach national family planning (FP) goals.

This document is intended to lead program managers, planners, and policymakers through a strategic process to determine if and how task sharing family planning (FP) services can be used to help achieve development goals.

The impact of evidence-based family planning interventions or High Impact Practices (HIPs) is bolstered when responsibilities for delivering high-quality contraceptive services are optimally shared and distributed across different types of family planning service providers within the health system. Download this HIP Strategic Planning Guide here. https://www.fphighimpactpractices.org/guides/task-sharing-family-planning-services/ This strategic planning guide will be made available in French, Spanish, and Portuguese soon.

HIPs are a set of evidence-based family planning practices with demonstrated impact on contraceptive use and proven relevance in various contexts, vetted by global experts. HIPs enable programs to focus resources to maximize impact and encompass three categories of family planning: Service Delivery, Social and Behavior Change, and Enabling Environment. HIPs Core Conveners are USAID, UNFPA, WHO, IPPF, and FP2020. Visit www.fphighimpactpractices.org to learn more about HIPs.
