The Global Family Planning Visibility and Analytics Network (VAN) is the first fully scaled control tower in the public health sphere. Its over 100 member organizations can track in real time over 7,500 shipments of 71 products across 145 countries. They can do so because the VAN seamlessly integrates into a single collaborative platform what were once multiple siloed data and analytical processes. As we all know, lack of insight to expected shipments and inaccurate estimates of consumption frequently result in supply stockouts. Fortunately, improved data visibility and more efficient data management are enabling the VAN to act faster than ever before. Come see how the VAN is helping countries, procurers, and manufacturers align supply plans with reality in order to mitigate stockouts and overstocks.

Come and learn about two online interactive tools, developed in collaboration between RHSC and Avenir Health, that provide key country level information on contraceptive commodity financing and needs. First, an interactive online data annex allows for access to detailed results showcased in the recent RHSC Compass Initiative Series Financing Report: Contraceptive Commodity Funding During the COVID-19 Pandemic. The annex showcases recent trends in public sector (government and donor) expenditures on contraceptive commodities, bringing together a range of data sources in one easy to use tool. Second, learn how to get more from the RHSC LEAP report by exploring the interactive Custom Reports. The Custom Reports allow you see an overview of results for a particular country or region, compare results across countries, and take a deeper dive into a specific product.

Access to high quality commodities for the management of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is limited in many resource-constrained settings due to quality issues with many PPH products and the lack of suitably trained and authorised birth attendants to safely administer injectable medicines. Inhaled oxytocin aims to overcome these challenges by providing gold-standard PPH management that does not require refrigerated storage and supply, and can be simply administered by all cadres of birth attendant without the requirement for additional consumables (such as a needle and syringe). Inhaled oxytocin reimagines oxytocin delivery by reformulating oxytocin in a powder form that can be easily administered using a simple, low-cost inhalation device and has been independently assessed as the only PPH medicine in development with the potential for high impact (McDougall et al., 2022).
