Annual commodity cost per CYP

What is Couple Years of Protection (CYP)?

CYP is the estimated protection provided by contraceptive methods during a one-year period, based upon the volume of all contraceptives sold or distributed free of charge to clients during that period.

Why does CYP as an indicator to measure program performance?

CYP is easy to calculate from data that programs routinely collect; these data can come from a variety of sources and are relatively easy to track. The term "CYP" reflects distribution and is a way to estimate coverage and not actual use or impact. The CYP calculation provides an immediate indication of the volume of program activity. CYP can also allow programs to compare the contraceptive coverage provided by different family planning methods.
