HIP Technical Advisory Group Meetings

How Are Practices Identified and Selected? In an effort to support the renewed focus on evidence-based programming, a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) was formed. The TAG is made up of more than 25 international experts in family planning research, programming, and implementation identified from donor agencies, research institutions, and service delivery organizations. The TAG meets twice a year to review evidence and make recommendations on updating and implementing HIPs. Read the paper titled, Guidance on assessing the potential sustainability of Practices as part of an evidence review: Considerations for High Impact Practices in Family Planning.
