A Meeting on Hormonal Contraceptives and other Essential Medicines was held at UNFPA headquarters in New York, 16-18th April.
The meeting was a follow-up to an interagency consultation with procurers held by RHSC in Washington DC in May 2010 and focused on the harmonization and alignment of quality assurance policies and practices amongst international procurers. The meeting was part of the planned activities of RHSC’s Quality Reproductive Health Medicines (QuRHM) Programme and was hosted by UNFPA with the support of Concept Foundation.

Participants discussed the new Expert Review Panel (ERP) for Reproductive Health Medicines and the upcoming London Family Planning Summit hosted by DFID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
