The Coalition's work is guided by a Strategic Plan that outlines its vision, goals and objectives for 2015-2025. The Plan provides a detailed blueprint for action, tracking progress and clarifying Coalition roles and responsibilities.
Our vision is that of a world where all people are able to access and use affordable, quality supplies, including a broad choice of contraceptive methods, needed to ensure their better sexual and reproductive health.
Our mission is to bring together a diversity of partners and mobilize their collective strengths to increase access to a full range of affordable, quality reproductive health supplies in low- and middle income countries.

We add value to the activities of individual member-organizations
We do not duplicate the work of our member-organizations but rather operate with and through partners by concentrating on outcomes that no single partner could otherwise achieve on its own. We leverage the comparative strengths and funding sources of all members.
We foster greater country ownership in meeting RH supply needs
For the Coalition, “fostering ownership” means focusing on country-defined needs, supporting country-driven strategies to address those needs, and leveraging the support of the global community on behalf of countries.We view sexual and reproductive health and rights as fundamental to ensuring equitable access and use of RH supplies.
We view reproductive health and rights as fundamental to ensuring equitable access to and use of RH supplies
This includes informed choice of contraceptive methods as well as improved availability of high-quality maternal health supplies.
We believe that access to supplies is a necessary but not sufficient factor to achieving better reproductive health
Although supplies are essential to ensuring reproductive health, other significant contributions are necessary, including strengthened service delivery, greater awareness/promotion, and more conducive policy environments.
Our next decade holds out the promise of a better life for millions of women and men around the world. The road ahead will not be without its forks or its obstacles and we are truly fortunate to have this Strategy as our guide.
Achieving our vision will not occur without certain conditions being met: that supplies actually reach those who need them most; that the supplies are affordable and within the reach of all; that supplies and products are of trusted quality; and that there is a sufficient choice of supplies to meet users’ needs. These four broad preconditions—availability, equity, quality, and choice—stand as the Pillars of our Strategy.
The ability of women and men to obtain safe, affordable supplies that meet their reproductive health needs. Supply availability exists when products feed into the supply chain and successfully make their way to the point-of-distribution, where users can obtain them.
The ability of women and men to have supplies they can trust are both safe and effective. Good sexual and reproductive health depends on ensuring the quality of all reproductive health supplies.
The ability of all people to have equitable access to reproductive health supplies. Age, economic well-being, gender, and civil status all have profound implications for the kinds of supplies potential users seek and the ability of users to afford them. The barriers impeding universal access to sexual and reproductive health must be overcome.
The ability of all who seek family planning services to have a broad range of options from which to choose. An individual’s need for contraception evolves throughout his or her life cycle. Accessing the “right” contraceptive increases the likelihood reproductive health needs will be met; a mismatch, research shows, is more likely to lead to dissatisfaction, lower continuation rates, and often method failure.
