In Women’s Month 2022, Stop Stockouts Project (SSP) invites you to attend the launch of a report about access to contraceptives in South African public health clinics between April and June 2022.
While the stockouts situation in South Africa has improved over the years, key findings indicate that contraceptives now represent the most significant share of medicines stockouts in the public healthcare system. Moreover, the impact of these contraceptive stockouts falls squarely on women and girls.
This Women’s Month, the SSP draws attention to the ongoing problem of contraceptive stockouts across the country and calls on government to ensure a reliable supply of preferred contraceptives.
Join us as we discuss what these findings mean for women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
