Recommendations to Build Resilient Supply Chains in the Humanitarian-Development Nexus
16th October 2020
Women, girls, and other marginalized groups need lifesaving sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services whether they live in stable or crisis-affected settings. Essential SRH services cannot be delivered without access to adequate quantities of high-quality, affordable SRH supplies. During crises, the lack of availability of SRH supplies at the last mile has been documented multiple times as a critical gap that impedes delivery of lifesaving SRH services.
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.
