LEAP/Commodity Gap Analyses
LEAP is a way to estimate future use and cost of reproductive health supplies in four key health areas – contraception, menstrual hygiene, abortion and post-abortion care, and maternal health.
The Landscape and Projection of Reproductive Health Supply Needs has its origins in the historic Contraceptive Gap Analysis, but makes a quantum leap into new health areas. LEAP also shifts away from spending and gaps, and instead, examines how supply costs will change going forward.
Four unique stories, one big picture
While each of these health areas is unique, LEAP captures the synergies between them – projections of contraceptive use offer insights into how many women will experience pregnancy, which in turn inform estimates of how many women will not menstruate due to being pregnant or post-partum. And LEAP even ventures to trace the impact of the use of hormonal contraceptive methods on menstruation, which could lead women to needing fewer or no menstrual hygiene supplies.
To be available shortly, this special feature of LEAP will allow the reader to dig deeper into the data, find results for a specific country or region, compare countries or regions, and explore a single product.
