Task Sharing Tool

A simple tool to show the potential impact of allowing greater task sharing of family planning

Marie Stopes International has developed the task sharing impact model to help quantify the potential benefits of task sharing of family planning services. When users add data on current task sharing policy, number of healthcare workers in the selected country, and their average salaries, the model can quantify country specific estimates of the potential benefits of task sharing. These include:

-  Improved ratio of family planning providers to women.
-  Amount of doctor time freed up by task sharing to lower cadre workers. 
-  The increased health impacts resulting from liberalisation of task sharing policies, for a pre-defined health worker salary spend.
-  The improved cost effectiveness of serving a pre-defined number of family planning clients.

Through quantifying the potential benefits of task sharing in a specific national context, the task sharing impact model can be a powerful tool for those advocating for policy reforms in this area.
