GLOBAL MARKETS VISIBILITY PROJECT
As part of their efforts to expand access to a wide choice of family planning methods, the CHAI and the RHSC, in cooperation
with the FP2020 Market Dynamics Working Group, are implementing a Global Markets Visibility Project. The project will address
information gaps in the reproductive health commodities market, consolidate and analyze consumption and shipment data and monitor and report market trends by product.
Since 2004, the RHSC has collected and published data on contraceptive orders and shipments. Building on this base, the RHSC and CHAI are developing a data-repository program that will enable shipment data to be de-identified and then aggregated for global analysis of market trends. CHAI will collect and manage the supplier shipment data at the global level, keeping supplier data confidential. Key shipment metrics include:
- shipments by country and region (Africa, Asia Pacific, Latin America, etc.)
- shipments by product (implants, injectables, oral contraceptives, etc.)
Working with industry, donors, and the RHSC, CHAI will publish reports that provide insight into the family planning market. Using supplier data together with in-country source data on consumption, the reports will validate actual supply and demand in the market. The resulting insights will enable suppliers to make better decisions about capacity planning and investments. Partners will be able to identify shortfalls and excesses, and develop plans to improve family planning product markets. Countries will be able to track their progress and determine what is needed to realize their FP2020 commitments.
