Frequently asked questions
Why should I join?
The Coalition adds value to the work of its member organizations by helping them to accomplish more, collectively, than they could otherwise do on their own. The Coalition provides members with a forum for technical collaboration and problem-solving, serves as a "brain trust" of relevant expertise and experience, and promotes greater efficiency through improved coordination and harmonization. It increases global awareness of supply issues through strengthened advocacy. It supports the development of total markets for RH supplies and it seeks out resources for innovative ideas and research.
What are my rights as a member?
Except in instances that could lead to conflicts of interest, member organizations have access to all Coalition tools, resources, and web-based information. Members are entitled to Secretariat support in networking with other Coalition members and affiliates.
Member organizations may join and participate in any of the Coalition’s technical Working Groups and propose topics for follow-up by them, the Executive Committee, and/or the Secretariat. Members are also entitled to a key governance role in the Coalition. They may vote for and serve as the Head of any Working Group in which they are involved; and serve as a member of the Executive Committee, including the role of Chair.
What are my responsibilities?
Coalition membership entails responsibilities, foremost of which is acceptance of the Coalition’s vision to ensure that all people can access and use affordable, high-quality supplies, including a broad choice of contraceptives, to ensure their better reproductive health. Membership also implies the acceptance of the Coalition’s strategic goals, Terms of Reference, and core values of equitable access to supplies, broad product choice, gender equity and country ownership of the development process. Finally, members are expected to participate actively in the work of the Coalition, allow their name to be listed publicly as a Coalition member, and declare any conflicts of interest that may arise.
Coalition members are expected to cover the costs of their participation at all Coalition-related events, including membership meetings and Working Group sessions. At present, there are no dues or financial contributions required to register or maintain membership status. This policy may change as the Coalition seeks out opportunities to better achieve its strategic goals and ensure its financial sustainability.
