Who are AccessRH clients?
Providing contraceptives for millions of people can be a challenge. AccessRH enables governments and NGOs of low-and-middle-income countries to make the best use of limited resources by delivering high quality supplies in a cost effective and reliable way. AccessRH clients are able to gain access to quality-assured supplies, to save time and to avoid stock outs.
More than 100 NGOs and governmental institutions around the world have partnered with AccessRH since 2011 to provide high quality reproductive health supplies to developing countries. These clients cover a wide range of organizations and institutions from all over the world, including Governments, NGOs, World Bank borrowers and other UN organizations.
UNFPA undertakes procurement services on behalf of:
- Inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations (INGOs/NGOs)
- International financial institutions
- Philanthropic organizations
- Academic institutions
- Other United Nations agencies
Note: Under normal circumstances, UNFPA does not undertake procurement services for individuals or profit-making entities. However, if the goods and or services are for use in a developing country, you may contact UNFPA with your request and justification.
On a case-by-case basis, UNFPA will consider your request and may approach our suppliers to determine if they are willing to accept such an order at UNFPA's prices or at a premium, with the agreement that goods will not be resold or transferred beyond the identified client.
Case Study: Benin
What do you do when you need 4 million condoms quickly?
Plan Benin, an NGO working with youth HIV prevention, partnered with AccessRH to prevent a looming stock out of male condoms. By maintaining inventory of key contraceptives, UNFPA shipped 4 million male condoms directly from stock, shortening the wait time and enabling the NGO to provide life-saving supplies.
