HIP Briefs are designed to develop consensus around what works in family planning. The HIPs describe family planning practices that have demonstrated impact, are applicable across settings, and are scalable, sustainable, and cost-effective. HIPs are classified as either Service Delivery, Enabling Environment, Social and Behavior Change, or HIP Enhancements. Service Delivery and Social and Behavior Change HIPs are further categorized according to the strength of the evidence base for each practice – proven or promising.

The main audience of HIP briefs are policymakers and implementers.

HIP briefs are updated based on current evidence and information. View the previous versions of now updated HIP briefs.
