WomanCare Global (WCG)
2012—London Family Planning Summit
WomanCare Global (WCG) and PSI will expand access to and stimulate demand for family planning by merging WCG’s supply chain management and quality assurance expertise with PSI’s health communications and social marketing of products and services. With the focused deployment of resources for family planning programs from existing funding sources, this partnership will expand access to an array of reproductive health products and manage the large-scale distribution, increase usage of long-acting, reversible contraceptives, monitor quality of products and evaluate programs and will provide training and other forms of support. Specific tactics include the registration of a broad range of reproductive health products and the utilization of the existing wholesale and retail distribution infrastructure to make products widely available, supplemented by outreach events and the engagement of community-based health workers. The partnership will focus on an integrated pilot effort in four markets in Africa.
