United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

For more than 30 years, UNFPA has been procuring contraceptives and related commodities for the developing world. UNFPA is today the largest public sector procurer of these items. In 2010 the UNFPA Global Programme to Enhance Reproductive Commodity Security (GPRHCS) provided more than $32 million for the purchase of contraceptives, such as condoms, injectables, pills, implants and IUDs. UNFPA also provides contraceptive procurement on behalf of third party clients such as governments, United Nations organizations and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

The Central Contraceptive Procurement project (CCP) at USAID serves as the central procurement mechanism for USAID Missions. In FY 2011, CCP, through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, provided 488 shipments of contraceptives and condoms to 40 countries, with a total value of $116,846,834.
