2012 Caucus Product Briefs now online

6th June 2012

The Caucus on New and Underused RH Technologies is pleased to announce that the 2012 Product Briefs are now online. The briefs cover a set of 13 technologies considered new or undersued, according to the Caucus definitions:

  • New reproductive health technologies are those that are new to a global or country market, and are currently available for procurement
  • Underused reproductive health technologies are those that are not routinely available in the public, private, or social marketing sectors, as well as those technologies not routinely procured by the major procurers. In country settings, underused technologies are those that are not present in that country’s reproductive health program, despite their presence in a comparable country’s reproductive health program.

New this year are three briefs on the following maternal health supplies: magnesium sulfate, misoprostol, and oxytocin.

The briefs can be downloaded invididually by product or as a set. Please click here to download.
