Across low and middle income countries (LMICs), women and girls are unable to access the sexual and reproductive health (SRH)/ family planning (FP) commodities they need (Ninsiima, 2021). This is partly due to a lack of steady and predictable supply of FP commodities despite available funds for this purpose.

Unavailability of FP commodities negatively affects the achievement of FP goals such as, ‘no parenthood before adulthood’. Thus, it is imperative that governments, donors, and decision-makers collaborate to improve FP commodity security.
