Quantification of Health Commodities: Contraceptive Companion Guide (Forecasting Consumption of Contraceptive Supplies)

This guide should be used to support the forecasting step in conducting a quantification for contraceptive supplies, following the project's approach to quantification. The guide presents a methodology for forecasting consumption of contraceptives and the additional supplies needed to provide both short-acting methods (SAM) and long-acting and permanent methods (LAPM) of contraception. Throughout the guide, examples of forecasting for a SAM (contraceptive pills) and a LAPM of contraception (sterilization) are presented to illustrate the data sources, forecasting assumptions, and the outputs at each step.
