Mobile logisticians armed with CommCare manage the stock of all family planning commodities in 1,400 facilities across Senegal.
IntraHealth and Dimagi have worked together to develop and deploy a CommCare application for the management of all family planning commodities in 1,400 facilities across Senegal. In this deployment, mobile logisticians equipped with commodities travel to each facility to perform inventory management tasks, track indicators, calculate resupply levels, and delivery commodities on the spot. Each logistician is equipped with a tablet running CommCare, which allows them to easily record, manage, and review stock information for hundreds of facilities. This intervention is currently being scaled nationally in Senegal.

Community health workers use CommCare to track the performance of a postpartum IUD initiative for more than a year after delivery.
The postpartum IUD initiative aims to address the postpartum contraceptive needs of women by training community midwives, health workers, doctors, and delivery unit staff in postpartum IUD counseling and insertion. As part of this project, project staff are using CommCare to collect baseline and intervention data, including data with women at the hospital after delivery, at nine months, and at 18 months after delivery.
Community health workers use CommCare to monitor geographical demand for preferred methods of family planning across Tanzania.
D-Tree International and Dimagi have developed a CommCare application that monitors geographical demand for specific kinds of family planning methods. CHWs collect information on which method of contraception a woman is using versus which method she would have chosen had it been available. This data can inform programs on which forms of contraception are preferred.
