Incorporating Supply Chain Strengthening in Commitments

Family planning programs rely on supply chains to bring contraceptive commodities to the women and girls who want to use them. Problems at any point in the chainā€”from initial procurement to local distributionā€”can lead to empty shelves. A secure supply chain, on the other hand, means fewer stockouts and bottlenecks, and a greater variety of products on offer when and where theyā€™re needed. It means that women and girls have more choices and a more reliable source of the contraceptive products they prefer.
