The USAID | Health Policy Initiative project is over. The current policy-focused USAID project is Health Policy Plus (HP+).

Current Projects

Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Health Policy Plus (HP+) strengthens and advances health policy priorities in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal health across global, country, and subnational levels. HP+ builds upon the four previous global health policy projects focused on evidence-driven policies.

Previous Projects

Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1
Task Order 1 (2005–2010) carried out activities in about 70 countries and regions. Publications, software, and other tools produced by the project can be accessed through the Resources page.

Costing Task Order
This task order strengthened capacity for strategic information use, with a focus on analyzing cost-effectiveness data and estimating resource needs for HIV and other health interventions.

The  Health Policy Project (2010–2015) built on this work, with an emphasis on strengthening in-country capacity for policy, advocacy, and governance. 

USAID | PASCA strives to strengthen the HIV response in the Central American region. The full PASCA website, including materials available in Spanish, can be accessed at

Greater Mekong and China
HPI/GMR-C promoted an enabling environment for HIV programs in the Greater Mekong region and southern China, especially for the most-at-risk populations.

HPI/Peru focused on seven priority regions, where it strengthened policies and capacity to improve health sector performance at the decentralized level. The project also promoted gender equity and culturally appropriate services for indigenous populations.

South Africa
The objective of HPI/South Africa was to strengthen the capacity of organizations across all sectors to design, implement, and evaluate HIV policies and programs.

In Tanzania, HPI fostered an enabling environment for the scale-up of HIV prevention, care, and treatment and provision of high-quality FP/RH services.

HPI/Vietnam enhanced the HIV response by facilitating policy development and implementation, strengthening public sector and civil society leaders and networks, and ensuring use of data for decisionmaking.
