To address these issues, the MHTRT divided into multiple subgroups, one of which was the Tools Subgroup. A key task of the Tools Subgroup was to compile an inventory of tools that would serve as a resource to countries interested in improving access to and use of maternal health medicines. The tools listed in the inventory include materials related to quantification and forecasting, use, and demand and availability. Inventory of Tools for Maternal Health Supplies 2 3 METHODOLOGY Tools were collected through the following methods:  Members of the Tools Subgroup submitted tools developed by their organizations/ projects. Specifically, tools were submitted by John Snow, Inc. (JSI), the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition (RHSC), Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS), and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).  An Internet search was conducted by examining the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) Toolbox, and the websites of the Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage Initiative (POPPHI), Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), Supplies Information Database (SID), and other partners. A total of 66 tools were reviewed by members of the Tools Subgroup. Of these tools, 45 were selected for inclusion on the basis of relevance to the goals and objectives of the UNCoLSC. The tools were then categorized by purpose, type of tool, type of commodity, and level of use. Table 1 presents the categories and sub-categories developed to organize the tools. Table 1.

Each information sheet provides the name of the tool and its developer, the tool’s purpose, main audience, language(s) in which it is available, and keywords related to the tool’s purpose (e.g., quantification) and commodity (e.g., reproductive health). Each information sheet also includes a hyperlink to the tool’s website. To facilitate access to the toolkit, both the individual information sheets and the complete inventory of tools have been uploaded to the SID, an online library of reproductive health (RH)- related supply publications, hosted by RHSC on its website. Keywords for locating each information sheet on the SID are included on each information sheet itself. Table 2 lists the tools included in this inventory. Table 2.
