The Innovations in Family Planning Services (IFPS) Technical Assistance Project (ITAP) implemented by Palladium and facilitated multi-sectoral dialogue, strategic information analysis and use, in-country capacity building and implementation assistance to the government of India and three northern states in improving family planning indicators in the country. A major thrust for ITAP was to develop, design, demonstrate, document, and disseminate innovative public-private partnership (PPP) models and financing strategies that reach the poor and vulnerable communities with family planning services. The project piloted six innovative and scalable PPP models in three states of North India (Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Jharkhand) from 2005-2012.
