Sustaining Gains of Family Planning Revitalization

Since 2013, the Family Planning team of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has invested in MyChoice (PilihanKu) project in Indonesia. Led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (JHCCP), MyChoice was implemented in close collaboration with BKKBN to strengthen BKKBN’s capacity to manage and implement the family planning (FP) program from the central to the sub-district levels. The program has four key components: demand generation, supply chain management, facility readiness, and leadership.


One of the many important ways MyChoice strengthened BKKBN was by providing a set of digital tools that improve the overall family planning management and programming. These include a data dashboard for visualization of FP primary indicators, a digital supply chain to support program staff in generating distribution plans and monitoring key performance indicators, and a BIMA e-learning platform as a media for staff to increase their competence independently. In addition to the digital platforms, MyChoice supported the development of the advocacy and Kampung KB (Quality Family Village) components and strengthened the leadership skills of first and second-echelon officials.
