2017 Evaluation of the Use of Inter-Agency Reproductive Health Kits for Crisis Situations

This mixed methods evaluation by UNFPA of the Inter-Agency Reproductive Health Kits for Crises Setting provides important considerations during the procurement, distribution, and utilization processes. The research concludes that investing in capacity and systems building for sustainable supply chains in countries needs to be a top priority to ensure that the right people in the right contexts are ordering the right amount of kits for the right period of time. This will not only reduce over-ordering and waste, but will ensure that timely and context appropriate lifesaving medical commodities arrive where they are needed most.
