Quality IUDs for everybody
When you are at the start of the supply chain, you don’t always get to see how your products are influencing people’s lives. But after having produced more than 12M intrauterine devices (IUDs), Injeflex, a member of the Coalition since 2009, knows that their products are contributing to the wellbeing of women all around the world.
They started operations in Brazil in 2002. Soon after obtaining their ISO certification, they received the first order from UNFPA. Today, Injeflex is a supplier for many other procurers, including the Brazilian Ministry of Health.
We are one of six IUD manufacturers of IUDs pre-qualified suppliers to UNFPA. All six of us are united in this endeavor to provide the best LARC to organisations, both NGOs and Governments to implement their Family Planning Programs.
Quality is the number one priority for Injeflex, as they align to the Coalition’s strategic Pillars. In order to assure that quality products are widely available for the consumers, the company complies with the legal requirements of GMP, ISO and CE1: “We aim for the maximum level of product and service quality that we can achieve. Only this way can we assure that our customers face no difficulties as we introduce our product into worldwide programs. - John F. Konig, Injeflex Ind. e Com. Ltda”
