Family Planning Supply Chain: Key Indicators Abstract:

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) strives to build the capacity of countries to “design, implement, and sustain high-performing supply chain systems for family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services,” which contributes to the long-term availability of FP/RH commodities that clients can afford and trust (USAID, n.d.).

Rigorous monitoring and evaluation is essential to the success of FP programs. This resource outlines eight key supply chain indicators that USAID implementing partners can use to inform the M&E of FP programs supporting activities in the supply chain PRH priority area. Each indicator featured in this resource contains a definition as well as any calculations, suggested disaggregations, or reference periods.

No program or project should use all indicators presented here. For routine monitoring, program managers and evaluators should select a few relevant indicators that both are important to program objectives and easy to collect and interpret. The indicators may be supplemented or tailored to reflect a program’s unique context and objectives.
