  • Remarks We are pleased to announce that the Procurement Capacity Toolkit: Tools and Resources for Procurement of Reproductive Health Supplies is now available in Spanish. The Toolkit is designed to help public sector country procurement agencies strengthen their capacity. Developed by PATH, the Toolkit is the first comprehensive resource to focus exclusively on the procurement process for reproductive health products. It organizes the public-sector supply process for reproductive health commodities into three phases—program planning, procurement process and performance—and ten essential steps within these three phases. The translation was made possible by an innovation fund grant through the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition to Peruvian NGO PRISMA (http://www.prisma.org.pe/ ). PRISMA has done an excellent job in ensuring that the content was maintained, while adding critical Latin American context to the Toolkit. We are pleased to see that the original investment in this work through the Quality of RH Medicines project, a collaboration of WHO, UNFPA and PATH funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has been leveraged with RHSC funding to bring this valuable resource to Spanish speaking countries. The Toolkit can be found at http://www.path.org/publications/detail.php?i=1652 Please direct any questions to PRISMA’s Gutierrez Carlos (cgutierrez@prisma.org.pe) or PATH’s Keith Neroutsos (kneroutsos@path.org)
