Family Planning High Impact Practices (HIPs) are a set of evidence-based practices developed by experts in the family planning sector that improve family planning and reproductive health outcomes. This webinar, hosted by the PACE (Policy, Advocacy, and Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health) project and the Implementing Best Practices Initiative Secretariat, will explore how HIPs can be applied in development programs that integrate multiple sectors at the community level, including family planning.

The webinar will share knowledge from a newly published web feature and policy brief, providing background on HIPs and exploring the promising opportunity to expand their use within population, health, and environment (PHE) projects. Speakers Laura Cooper Hall (Population Reference Bureau), Caitlin Thistle (United States Agency for International Development), and Yvette Ribaira (JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc.) will discuss the value of HIPs to PHE projects and family planning outcomes and highlight how PHE projects are already implementing HIPs elements in their activities.

The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session between Caitlin Thistle, a HIP expert, and Yvette Ribaira, a PHE project implementer, during which the two will identify opportunities for strengthening PHE projects through the greater use of HIPs. This event will be of interest to HIPs experts and implementers and PHE project managers interested in strengthening their family planning activities to enhance reproductive health outcomes.
