Audit of USAID/India’s Innovations in Family Planning Services Program.
Fiscal Year: 2011
India’s population, already large at 1.2 billion, continues to grow annually at a rate of 1.5 percent. Contraceptive use in India has seen a slow but steady rise over the past several decades, but data indicate that family planning needs are not being fully met because of inadequate service provision and counseling as well as limited access to commodities. In addition, the infant mortality rate—301 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births throughout India—is still unacceptably high.
To assist the Government of India in reducing fertility and increasing contraceptive use in targeted regions, USAID designed the Innovations in Family Planning Services Program. The overall goal of the program is to strengthen health systems to allow the delivery of quality family planning and reproductive health services. The project focuses on strengthening institutions, improving demand and use of family planning services and products, strengthening community-based delivery of such services, and developing public-private partnership models.
This audit will determine whether USAID/India’s Innovations in Family Planning Services Program is strengthening health systems to allow for the delivery of quality family planning and reproductive health services.
