Countries at Risk (CAR) group addresses supply problems
9th January 2008
In December 2007, the Countries at Risk (CAR) group addressed a number of supply problems including pending stockouts in Bangladesh, Kenya, and Mozambique; overstocks of IUDs in Ethiopia; and shortages of pills in Ghana and Zimbabwe. The United States Agency for International Development has planned at least two emergency air shipments (one for condoms to Bangladesh and one for pills to Kenya) and others are bringing forward scheduled shipments where possible. Contact CAR Coordinator Steve Kinzett for any additional information.
