BKKBN, Indonesia’s national family planning board, is working to reinvigorate family planning services in Indonesia to increase the country’s mCPR, address unmet need, and ensure that women can choose from a variety of contraceptive methods. Critical to ensuring the success of this strategy is implementing a reliable, responsive supply chain that delivers quality contraceptives to service delivery points when and where they are needed.
In support of this strategy, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) is addressing the supply chain component of the “Right Method, Right Time, My Choice” project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project is implementing both supply- and demand-side interventions designed to promote underutilized long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs).
JSI's logistics work complements the "My Choice” behavior change campaign to improve product availability in 11 pilot districts through an implementation research approach. The project will share lessons and data on effective interventions for future use by BkkbN (Indonesia’s family planning coordination board) in a phased approach, including a comprehensive baseline assessment, supply chain system review workshop, support for targeted interventions, and an endline assessment and presentation of findings for decision-making.
Right Method, Right Time, My Choice is led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) in coordination with consortium partners, Jhpiego, Avenir Health, and DKT International.
