Delivering Family Planning One Village at a Time: 20 Years of Supply Chain Work in Bangladesh

Download this publicationThe family planning effort in Bangladesh is widely recognized as one of the world's most successful ones and a model for other countries to follow. For more than 20 years, USAID worked with John Snow, Inc., to improve the delivery of family planning supplies in Bangladesh through multiple, consecutive projects, focusing primarily on logistics, procurement, institutional strengthening, capacity building, and commodity security.

This publication highlights achievements and lessons learned from 1988 to 2010. Some of the hallmarks of the technical assistance provided in Bangladesh include: functional web-based LMIS, modernization of the supply chain system, a long-term solution to dealing with chronic expiry of products within the system, and commodity security policy interventions.
