Procurement Capacity Toolkit by PATH2009-12-09
To help procurement personnel address the challenges encountered in effectively procuring quality reproductive health supplies, PATH has developed the Procurement Capacity Toolkit. The Toolkit is designed in a modular format and is focused on strengthening the capacity of personnel responsible for public-sector procurement of contraceptives and reproductive health supplies. The Toolkit:
- Describes the reproductive health supply process in the context of good public-sector procurement practice.
- Describes measures and best practices to ensure procurement of safe, effective contraceptives and reproductive health supplies.
- Provides summary information for policymakers and program managers on the public-sector procurement process.
- Provides tools for training personnel involved in the reproductive health supply process.
PATH has evaluated the Toolkit by working closely with public-sector procurement staff in Malawi and Zambia. We have incorporated lessons learned into a final version of the Toolkit that is available for widespread distribution. Through this Toolkit and related trainings, PATH is helping increase access to much-needed reproductive health supplies in some of the world's poorest countries.
