Sayana Press is an easy-to-use hormonal birth control option for women. It is an injection, with a very small needle, that women can give to themselves to prevent pregnancies for 3 months. A woman using Sayana Press will need a new injection every 3 months, for a total of 4 shots every year. A woman can inject herself with this product at home or with the help of a friend or family member

You are so right, Samuel! Sayana Press/DMPA-SC has revolutionized access for women to contraception. Our colleagues in Francophone West Africa have documented the guidance for rolling it out according to national guidelines there: https://tciurbanhealth.org/courses/offre-de-services-de-planification-familiale/lessons/delegation-de-tache-auto-administration-du-dmpa-sc/. In addition, PATH has developed provider training videos and guides in English and French based on the Uganda rollout: https://www.path.org/resources/dmpa-sc-training-videos/ and https://www.path.org/resources/dmpa-sc-training-materials/
