3. Background Growing gap between the demand for contraceptive products and the ability of donor funding to provide commodities To keep pace with the rising demand, donor contributions would need to nearly double to satisfy unmet need by 2015 USAID and other international donors unable to meet demand. Social Marketing projects have been funded by donors to help increase access to contraceptives Continued donor support required with projects not being sustainable Donors increasingly focus on “sustainability” 100% sustainable approaches must be 100% commercially self sufficient in the long term

4. 2nd Tier Marketing Approach Approach defined as introduction of a fully commercial brand at a price point above social marketing and public sector distribution, but below commercial prices in “1st Tier” Addressing this market segment is not just filling a gap but also tries to move clients who can pay more for their RH services to move to those commodities ? Objective Broaden sustainable access to quality hormonal contraceptives through a new commercial venture

5. Assisted market interventions to move customers up the value chain Market segmentation is essential With the establishment of a new 2nd commercial tier market segment, a country market would change as shown on the slide. Moving clients up from free and SM and reducing the number of clients dependent in these segments.With the establishment of a new 2nd commercial tier market segment, a country market would change as shown on the slide.
