Training Supply Recommendations for DMPA-SC Rollout

Subcutaneous DMPA (DMPA-SC, brand name Sayana® Press) 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 for types and numbers of units 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.
