The Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition’s (RHSC) Resource Mobilization and Awareness Working Group (RMAWG) contributes to the health and well-being of all individuals by ensuring they have access to reproductive health commodities they want when they need them.
As part of RHSC, RMAWG commits to helping fulfill commitments made by convening country-level consultations in the world’s poorest countries to identify the most pressing policy barriers that restrict service delivery and access in each country and jointly define effective actions to address these barriers. RMAWG will publish and circulate widely the results of these consultations. Focusing on civil society engagement and partnerships, RMAWG also commits to raising awareness, mobilizing resources, driving policy change and implementation and holding governments and donors accountable for their commitments at both the global and national level.
Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition provided the following updates on progress in achieving its FP2020 commitments:
Under the auspices of the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition, Secretariat staff and members of the Advocacy and Accountability Working Group (formerly known as RMA WG) launched an interactive online platform—www.supplypromises.org—that provides easy access to close to 140 supply-related commitments made by governments and development agencies over the last decade, shares lessons on their implementation, and offers guidance on the formulation of new commitments.1
 The supplypromises.org online platform is also featured on the K4Health toolkit (https://www.k4health.org/toolkits/fp-logistics/supply-promises) and the Procurement Management Toolbox (http://www.psmtoolbox.org/en/tool-details|Distribution|SupplyPromises-online-database-of-reproductive-health-supplies-commitments|515)
