Women’s Integrated Sexual Health Programme (WISH2ACTION)


The Project

Client: International Planned Parenthood Federation  

Dates: ​​Multi-year, ongoing   

Project Description: The Women’s Integrated Sexual Health programme (WISH2ACTION – W2A) is a £155.6 million UK Aid-funded programme​. Led by International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF),​ it​ provides contraception ​to women ​as part of integrated and holistic healthcare ​services​​. Between 2018-2023, W2A aims to provide contraception to 2.7​ million​ additional users in 15 countries across South Asia and Africa. The programme is run by a consortium of five organisations: the International Rescue Committee, Options, Development Media International, Marie Stopes International, and Humanity and Inclusion UK. Ten IPPF member organisations help deliver the programme.  

Our Role: LAMP is ​working with W2A ​​​​​​to​ help embed a comprehensive ​Value for Money (VfM) ​approach ​across the programme​. This is​ in line with the value for money initiative of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), which aims to​ ensure​ greater accountability and impact in spending on overseas development aid. 

At the beginning of LAMP’s ​support​​ to the programme, LAMP developed a V​f​​​M strategy and framework to provide FCDO with information for external reporting and internal insights.​ LAMP now continues to work with W2A as their VfM partner.​  

Team Members: Adesoji Ologun, Jennifer Armitage, Molly Wood, Temitope Oke  


  • LAMP is working with W2A to embed V​f​M within the programme by improving knowledge and understanding of ​Vf​​​M across the consortium.​ This includes ​​designing ​regular webinars ​tailored to​​ the specific ​capacities of the programme’s various teams and to their practical ​​application of VfM ​in their everyday activities​. 
  • LAMP conducts annual V​f​​M assessments for the programme. Each assessment includes recommendations from the W2A’s third party monitor, recommendations from previous assessments, and the priorities of the programme itself.​ ​ 
  • ​​Through ​its ​assessment of the first year of the programme, ​LAMP identified that over £820k in VfM savings had been made since the programme started. This is equivalent to 1.7% of programme expenditure in the same period.​  
  • LAMP’s equity costing and cost effectiveness analyses of service delivery channels identified the costs involved in reaching vulnerable and hard to reach groups, as well as the costs associated with different delivery methods. This data is crucial information for both implementer and donor.  

Client Testimonial

LAMP’s project objectives were achieved, and we received positive feedback from DFID on the final output. The report led to some interesting discussions with DFID and between partners. The number-crunching and the organization of data was excellent. I think we worked very well together. Jennifer and Susie were always prompt and responsive.
