(2015; 10 pages)


The UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children (UNCoLSC) has identified 13 life-saving commodities that could save the lives of more than 6 million women and children in low-income countries over a five-year period if they were more widely available and used appropriately.

The WHO Department of Essential Medicines and Health Products organized two surveys to gain a better understanding of the availability and quality of these products in Member States. An overview of the methodology, findings and recommendations of the two surveys is provided in the annexes.
