New Countdown 2015 report
16th November 2009
A new Countdown 2015 report, The Role of Reproductive Health and Reproductive Health Supplies in Strengthening Health Systems, will look at the importance of reproductive health (RH) and reproductive health supplies (RHS) within basic health care and health system strengthening. It will present recommendations on how to ensure that they are included in the implementation of national health policies and health system strengthening. It will examine the role of European Union (EU) donors in supporting RH and RHS in the broader context of support to health system strengthening, not only through bilateral aid (e.g. in the form of budget support) but also through their contributions to global health organizations such as The Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, and global health initiatives such as UNITAID and the International Financing Facility for Immunisation.
The full report is available for download from the Countdown 2015 website.
