Abstract : Regarding maternal and reproductive health, regular supply of medicines for emergency obstetric care & infections and contraceptives to meet the needs of facilities is crucial. In this regard, this survey addressed stock out of Reproductive Health (RH) commodities supply chain; staff training and supervision; availability of guidelines and protocols; availability of information technology, methods of waste disposal, users’ fees and client’s satisfaction. A cross-sectional descriptive assessment was made in 2018 to representative sample of 380 health facilities (HFs) from all States and Regions. Out of total 175 primary level HFs, 94.3% were providing at least three modern contraceptive methods. Availability of at least “five” modern contraceptive methods was found in 48.5% of secondary. Overall 55% of the HFs had availability of (by the time of the survey) at least seven essential lifesaving maternal and RH drugs. The percentage was highest in tertiary level (78.9%) and lowest in primary level (48%). Recently no-stock-out of a modern contraceptive was found only in 62% of all sample HFs. Availability of cold chain was 67.6% of HFs and was higher in tertiary and secondary level HFs (100% and 86.2%) and much lower in primary level HFs (42.9%). Over half (61.6%) of HFs had trained staff for birth spacing. Proportion of HFs which had trained staff for implant increased to 31.3% from the last year data (i.e. 21.1%). Supervision for RH matter was received by 52.1% of HFs and it was higher in secondary level (57.5%) and highest in private hospitals (63.2%). Smart mobile phones and personal computers were mainly used for communication and for record keeping respectively. Most frequently used waste disposal methods were burying and burning. In conclusion, stock reallocation among different levels of health facilities across townships should be encouraged to keep adequate stock for RH and family planning logistics. The system management could be further strengthened with effective, efficient and consistent supervision, using a formal structure of checklist or logbook keeping at HFs at all levels. The survey findings would form the basis for measuring progress in family planning and RH services over the coming years.
