Recommendations to Build Resilient Supply Chains in the Humanitarian-Development Nexus

Women, girls, and other marginalized groups need lifesaving sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, whether they live in stable or crisis-affected settings. Humanitarian crises disrupt SRH supply chains, impeding the delivery of life-saving SRH services, and derailing investments in national SRH supply chains. The COVID-19 pandemic underscores that all countries are vulnerable to emergencies. We must therefore build resilient SRH supply chains that can withstand, adapt to, and recover from shocks like humanitarian crises to ensure universal access to SRH in all contexts. The Inter-Agency Working Group and the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition have co-published an advocacy brief calling on governments, donors, development agencies, and humanitarian agencies to build resilient supply chains for SRH through collaboration at the points where the humanitarian and development sectors converge. The brief outlines key recommendations for actors to improve supply chain preparedness and recovery.
