Everyone has a role to play if we are to resolve contraceptive stockouts once and for all.
Take Stock partners are leaders in the reproductive health community and have made commitments to resolving stockouts of reproductive health supplies – whether it is advocating for policy changes, measuring stockouts at the facility level, training staff to collect stockout data, adopting the Coalition’s harmonized stockout indicators, or allocating money towards improving supply chain functioning.

Take Stock partners are members of a community that realizes everyone has a role to play if we are to resolve stockouts once and for all. Organizations, partnerships, pharmaceutical companies and many others are already part of the movement.

Take Stock partners’ commitments include:

  • Tracking stockouts with the universal indicator
  • Raising awareness of Take Stock
  • Preventing stockouts in clinics
  • Reporting stockouts early and regularly
  • Engaging with local governments to train staff and raising awareness of the Take Stock Campaign
