Ensuring universal access to reproductive health and rights, including family planning, is key to achieving global goals to improve women’s and children’s health. Without additional attention and resources, unmet need is projected to grow by 40% over the next 15 years. Universal access to family planning requires implementation of a range of evidence-based practices to increase demand for and access to services. Supply chain management is one of the essential components. Three notable ways to strengthen reproductive health supply chains are: innovative use of technology, improving coordination and leveraging private sector experience in supply chain management. There are now significant opportunities related to initiatives such as Every Woman, Every Child for stakeholders to engage in building demand, strengthening supply chains, and ensuring sustained availability to family planning commodities, information and services.
