A strong reproductive health supply chain supported by an effective logistic management system ensures that the right quality product, in the right quantities, and in the right condition is delivered to the right place, at the right time, for a reasonable cost.

To accomplish this the customary supply chain has four major components: product selection, product procurement, product distribution and product use.

The resources in this section cover important supply chain and logistic management issues such as:

  • contraceptive forecasting,
  • procurement procedures and processes,
  • implementing logistics management information systems, and
  • using supply chain modelling to analyze needs for management and scale up of commodities.
