AccessRH hits 100-client mark

AccessRH, UNFPA’s procurement and information service for reproductive health supplies has now provided procurement services to more than 100 clients in over 70 countries.

AccessRH recently added female condoms, fistula kits and RH kits to an inventory that already included standard male condoms, female condoms, IUDs, Microgynon and Microlut. This approach helps countries prevent stockouts of critical RH supplies by mitigating lengthy production lead times. These key contraceptives are held in stock on UNFPA's behalf by manufacturers.
