e-POD is one of two recent family planning tracking apps developed with support from UNFPA.

The second is Qualipharm, created with local public health organisation HealthStrat, to track consumption of family planning commodities at county, sub-county and facility level. These are, says Charity Koronya, of UNFPA, “a game-changer, not only for health care staff but also for the citizens who rely on public health facilities to access life-saving commodities.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected women’s access to family planning information and services around the world, with some 12 million women experiencing disruptions to family planning services since it started, particularly in low-income countries and marginalised communities.
