Learn how High Impact Practices (HIPs) in family planning (FP) were adapted across Kenya, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe to maintain access to services in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Using a qualitative data collection tool structured around 3 HIP categories (service delivery, demand creation, and enabling environment), we documented adaptations in FP programs during the pandemic. We describe adaptations made to 3 specific HIPs: mobile outreach, community health workers, and digital health for social and behavior change.
