What is the Policy Environment Score(PES)?
The Policy Environment Score (PES) is intended to measure the degree
to which the policy environment in a particular country contributes to
improvements in the reproductive health status of the population, with
particular focus on access to high quality family planning and reproductive
health services. It includes modules for family planning, STD/AIDS, post-abortion
care, safe pregnancy and adolescents. The PES is comprised of a core
set of questions that should be modified or adapted to fit the specific
needs of various countries. The PES is designed to provide a quick assessment
of the policy environment at low cost. It is not designed to provide
a comprehensive assessment of the policy environment, but to be part
of a system for measuring the impact of policy activities.
