  • This brief is intended to help national and subnational governments and program managers to work together to achieve their countries' CS goals. Even when authority and responsibility are transferred to lower levels of government, a successful CS initiative still requires the central government's leadership, commitment, and coordination. This brief is organized into five areas that focus on issues to be addressed while aiming to achieve contraceptive security at lower levels of government: (1) policy; (2) strategic planning; (3) finance; (4) logistics, procurement, and management of human resources; and (5) community participation. In each area, the brief proposes strategies for capitalizing on the opportunities for working in a decentralized setting while addressing the associated challenges.
