DMPA-SC (brand name Sayana Press), a recent innovation in injectable contraceptives, has shown the potential to break new ground in family planning service delivery based on its recent introduction in several countries. Due to its unique presentation in the all-in-one Uniject system, the product is easy to use among those with minimal training, such as community health workers (CHWs) and even women themselves; thus, greatly increasing the potential for reaching women that previously could not easily be reached with modern contraceptives. This workshop was convened to share experiences, strategies, and tools used to introduce DMPA-SC and inform future roll-out plans.
