Making Self-Injection Count: A workshop on family planning data availability and use

March 9th, 2021 | event


Data has the power to convey the lived experiences of women and adolescents, highlighting the importance and potential of expanding choices to reduce unmet need for contraception. Self-injection data is often missing in routine family planning measurement and evaluation. Programs need an accurate measure of uptake of new options and self-care approaches to better understand the needs of women and adolescents, help ensure a contraceptive method mix and quality of care, and influence policy and procurement planning across development and humanitarian settings.

The PATH-JSI DMPA-SC Access Collaborative is hosting this workshop from March 22nd to March 25th, 2021, to prioritize the use of routine family planning data in policy and programming. We will spotlight DMPA-SC self-injection in order to catalyze discussion, learning, and country action—not only for this contraceptive option, but for broader family planning and self-care initiatives.
