The State Innovation in Family Planning Services Project Agency (SIFPSA) has been a jont venture of Government of India, USAID and Government of Uttar Pradesh for implementing the Innovations in Family Planning Services (IFPS) project in the state. During the two decades of successful implementing of IFPS projects, SIFPSA has mark in the global arena in FP and RCH. It is commendable that due to efficient programme management and good governance, SIFPSA has generated adequate resources, linkages and networks ans is ready to take on the challenges of sustainbability and financial independenc.
While Government of Uttar Pradesh has recognized SIFPSA as the state Technical support Unit (STSU), it has also signed MoUs with PFI for working together on Population policy of Uttar Pradesh and with training projects. SIFPSA is playing a major role in strengthening of HMIS and MCTS in the state and also helping in establishing integrated e-services delivery platform to improve field level workers performance in UP. SIFPSA is going to venture into business development arena and explore potential market opportunities to capture demands like formulating IEC/BCC strategies, creative campaigns, research & evaluation studies, monitoring system, clinical / non-clinical trainings, social franchising and CSR prospects and innovative PPP models.
I am sure, leveraging on its legacy as an autonomous body of GoUP, SIFPSA would build on its expertise and transform into a vibrant and sustainable Technical Support Organization.
