This project aims to ensure that women and girls around the world maintain access to quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Project activities include: (1) procuring and delivering maternal health medicines and contraceptives; (2) supporting SRH service delivery in the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Supplies’ 46 program countries; and (3) advocating with local governments and national stakeholders to promote access to SRH services. The project primarily benefits women and girls of reproductive age, particularly those who are underserved and vulnerable in rural and lower-income areas.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to maternal health medicines and contraceptives for women and girls; (2) improved performance of reproductive health supply chains experiencing disruption due to COVID-19; and (3) enhanced integration of sexual and reproductive health services within COVID-19 response efforts.
