Contraceptive security exists when every person can choose, obtain, and use high-quality contraceptives whenever they need them. Two of the most important factors in achieving contraceptive security are adequate financing and efficient contraceptive procurement mechanisms. The USAID | Health Policy Initiative and USAID | DELIVER Project are working together to develop a methodology for identifying operational policy barriers in the financing and procurement of family planning (FP) products. The goal is to help national governments, donors, and other key stakeholders improve the policy environment for contraceptive security. This report presents the findings from a pilot study the two projects conducted in Malawi to test this methodology.
