The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance.

Over 200 million women around the world have an unmet need for family planning (FP), indicating they would like to stop or limit childbearing, but do not have access to methods to do so. Increasing access to family planning has the potential to reduce maternal and infant mortality, reduce the number of deaths due to unsafe abortion, and improve the health outcomes of women and families overall. In DRC, 28% of women have an unmet need for family planning and it is estimated that only 8%of all women are currently using modern methods of family planning.
Since 2012, CHAI has worked with governments, partners and manufacturers to reduce the price of contraceptives and increase access to family planning supplies and services. In sub-Saharan Africa, CHAI’s helps Ministries to plan, coordinate, and implement family planning scale up, by providing a strong foundation of rigorous analysis and management support to more effectively target interventions, allocate resources, and fill gaps to align contraceptive supplies with human resource capacity and client demand. One particular focus of CHAI’s work is to improve the availability and use of human resource, logistics, and service delivery data to ensure that commodities are appropriately distributed as well as to identify facilities that need additionally supervision to ensure that quality services are offered.
In DRC, CHAI provides support to the National Program for the Supply of Essential Medicines (PNAM) and the National Program for Reproductive Health (PNSR) to improve forecasting and supply chain management and build government capacity for supply chain and family planning program performance management. CHAI aims to support the PNAM and PNSR to improve the availability and use of health systems data, to strengthen coordination across partners implicated in health and drug data systems rollout and use, and to support the government to develop and lead a vision for an electronic logistics management information system (eLMIS) compatible with the current national health information system (DHIS2). Additionally, CHAI will work with the Ministry of Health and key partners to map healthcare worker locations and trainings in order to develop and rollout with the PNSR a national Family Planning Dashboard, integrating data from DHIS2, healthcare training data, and information on partner support.
