Finding a shelf empty of the right contraceptive is the same as finding no contraceptive at all. And because a woman’s ability to plan her family affects the world around her, stockouts ripple through her loved ones, her community, her country. In response, the Coalition launched Take Stock, which mobilizes public health leaders, facilitates the development of a common language we can all use to talk about stockouts and gathers the commitments needed to spur real action.
