Common Advocacy Plan for Expanding Contraceptive Choice in India
In December 2012, the Health Policy Project (HPP) supported the ARC Coalition to bring together 20 consortium members and project partners to develop a common advocacy plan. Facilitators from HPP and the Advance Planning Project led the process by building focus, commitment, and consensus among consortium partners on a common advocacy issue. At the end of two days, the consortium members had identified key areas for policy advocacy that have the highest probability of success for ARC in the next year, identified the relevant key stakeholders, and began to develop action plans. Within the broader goal of contraceptive choices being expanded, the key areas identified included expanding the mix of spacing methods and increasing access to current methods of spacing.
