Family planning is critical to advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender equality. 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 of contraceptives in 46 countries through contraceptive planning and procurement while strengthening contraceptive supply chains to ensure these commodities reach the poorest and most vulnerable.

Expected results 

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 capacity for family planning service delivery including in humanitarian contexts; (5) strengthened capacity and systems for supply chain management and data generation; and (6) improved programme coordination and management.
