  1. This case study examines how PATH's advocacy and policy team works in decentralized government settings—countries where health care delivery and budgeting power is delegated to the district level—to move the needle on policies that protect the health of women and children. It highlights notable successes from the subnational level in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

  2. With the aim of galvanizing efforts to improve vaccination in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), PATH partnered with the newly elected government in 2019 to convene governors and leaders from each of the DRC’s 26 provinces for the National Forum on Immunization and Polio Eradication. At the Forum, government leaders discussed joint efforts to strengthen the country’s immunization system and advance progress toward polio eradication, and ultimately signed the Kinshasa Declaration on Immunization and Polio Eradication—an unprecedented show of commitment made possible by PATH's advocacy.

  4. Training and supervising health workers is one of the biggest challenges and cost drivers when introducing and bringing to scale a new contraceptive method or service delivery innovation. By leveraging digital platforms, family planning programs can integrate new approaches that help reduce the costs, time, and inconvenience associated with traditional classroom training.PATH has recently developed digital training resources for health workers and clients learning to administer the injectable contraceptive, subcutaneous DMPA (DMPA-SC). These resources are intended for health workers who provide family planning services in private, public, or community-based sectors.A 10-lesson DMPA-SC eLearning course is available in English and French and can be taken on computer or mobile device with internet access. Content includes an emphasis on informed choice counseling, new lessons on calculating the injection date and conducting follow-up visits, and updated information on training clients to self-inject.In addition to the eLearning course, PATH and John Snow, Inc. have developed short 5- to 7-minute training videos for both self-injection clients and health workers learning to administer DMPA-SC. Available in English and French, the videos can be translated or adapted to fit in program contexts.If you are interested in introducing DMPA-SC digital training approaches in your program, please contact the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative at FPoptions@path.org.

  5. Subcutaneous DMPA (DMPA-SC) is a three-month injectable contraceptive that is easy to use and uniquely suited for self-injection. Demonstration and practice injections are a key part of training programs for both health workers and self-injecting clients. Based on lessons learned in five countries, this memo summarizes PATH’s recommendations regarding devices for injection demonstration and practice, injection practice models, and waste disposal.This memo is included as part of PATH's training materials for facility- and community-based family planning providers.For more information, please visit www.path.org/dmpa-sc, sign up for our newsletter or email FPoptions@path.org.
