Scaling Up Lifesaving Commodities for Women, Children, and Newborns: An Advocacy Toolkit

This toolkit provides information about the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children (the Commodities Commission), its 13 priority commodities, and examples of how its ten recommendations to improve access and availability are being applied globally and within countries. It also provides advocacy resources for utilizing the Commodities Commission platform to raise awareness and engage stakeholders in addressing commodity-related gaps in global and national plans, policies and initiatives, as well as providing strategic input to advance implementation of the recommendations. The toolkit is organized into four major sections:

  • What you need to know (background information)
  • What you can do (guidelines on realizing the recommended actions)
  • What there is to say (messages)
  • Spotlight on commodities (overview of maternal, child, and newborn health and contraceptive commodities)
