High Impact Practices (HIPs) are a set of evidence-based family planning practices vetted by experts against specific criteria and documented in an easy-to-use format.
Endorsed by more than 30 organizations, HIPs help build consensus around our current understanding of what works in family planning. HIPs are identified based on impact on contraceptive use and potential application in a wide range of settings. Evidence of replicability, scalability, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness are also examined.
The eight-page HIP briefs can be used for advocacy, strategic planning, program design, exploration of research gaps, to inform policies and guidelines, and to support implementation. All briefs are available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
HIPs core conveners include: USAID, UNFPA, WHO/IBP, IPPF, and FP2020.
