Over the past decade, Indonesia’s contraceptive prevalence rate has remained stagnant, to reinvigorate family planning services in Indonesia The National Population & Family Planning Board (BKKBN) is working to ensure that women can choose from a variety of contraceptive methods as part of a “Right Method, Right Time, My Choice” strategy. One challenge to this strategy is inconsistent access to the full range of contraceptives, especially long acting contraceptives, at service delivery points (SDP).
Having a reliable, responsive supply chain that delivers quality contraceptives to service delivery points when and where they are needed is critical to ensuring the success of this strategy. JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) as part of the My Choice Project has been working with BKKBN to address the supply chain challenges.
Can contraceptive availability be improved by strengthening organizational supply chain capacity, multi-level collaboration, and data visibility and use? To achieve this the intervention package included
1) strengthening organizational capacity by redesigning standard processes and developing training tools such as video tutorials and mobile apps
2) improved multi-level collaboration through quality improvement techniques, mentorship, and on-the-job training and
3) improving data visibility, quality, and use through accurate logistics records and reports, creating an inventory management and monitoring tool that facilitates easy decision making, guides stock distribution to maintain adequate stock levels, and monitors overall performance of the supply chain.
Preliminary end line evaluation results suggest that the intervention package has improved supply chain performance and reduced stock outs, especially in areas where the full package was implemented.
