Since 2012, 450 health experts from 83 organizations have been implementing the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities’ recommendations to increase access to and use of 13 essential commodities for women’s and children’s health.

These experts have developed global knowledge resources and accumulated know-how to overcome obstacles in the supply chain for essential commodities, strengthen demand and ensure their quality and proper use in developing coun- tries. They are available on the Life-Saving Commodities website.

Making these resources available, however, is not enough. High burden countries, for which these knowledge re- sources are intended, should actually use them, adapt them to local contexts, and contribute their own knowledge and lessons.

The Life-Saving Commodities Practitioners’ Network is intended to translate the global learning and know-how that the experts have developed into country-level action under the banner of the new Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents Health. We will launch this network in August 2016.


The Life-Saving Commodities Practitioners’ Network will bring together RMNCAH experts, at the national, regional and global level, as well as a knowledge library, building on the 500+ resources currently hosted on the Life-Saving Commodities website.

It aims both to respond to knowledge needs at country level – through contacts with experts, knowledge sharing, mentoring – and capture country and regional knowledge on how to increase access to life-saving commodities.


The RMNCH Commodities Knowledge Network will serve two functions:

  • Provide a members only community of practice for colla- borative working and interdisciplinary reflection around the topic of access to life-saving commodities for RMNCH
  • Provide a public vehicle, via the ask-the-expert feature and knowledge library, for knowledge exchange and brokering between national practitioners and national and global experts

Who can join?

Professionals at the sub-national, national, regional and global levels, who are experienced at developing and implementing reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health programs and want to make a difference.
