Description and results
Family planning is critical to advancing gender equality and adolescents' empowerment. Among development actors, UNFPA Supplies is the largest provider of contraceptives in the world and is pivotal to the achievement of the Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) goal of enabling 120 million more women and girls to have access to contraceptives by 2020. Canada's support to UNFPA Supplies contributes to increasing the availability and use of contraceptives by adolescents in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mali. Project activities include: (1) supporting advocacy with governments for the inclusion of emergency contraception among an integrated package of reproductive health commodities available in-country; (2) improving adolescent and youth access to reproductive health services and information, including family planning and contraceptives, with a focus on humanitarian and fragile settings; and (3) strengthening capacity and systems for supply chain management to ensure availability of high-quality reproductive health supplies for adolescents and youth.
The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased availability of reproductive health commodities in support of reproductive and sexual health services including family planning, especially for poor and marginalized women and girls; (2) an enabled environment and strengthened partnership for reproductive health commodity security and family planning; (3) improved efficiency for procurement and supply of reproductive health commodities (global-level focus); (4) improved access to quality reproductive health and family planning services for poor and marginalized women and girls; (5) strengthened capacity and systems for supply chain management and data generation; and improved programme coordination and management.
