A Next-generation Approach Introducing DMPA-SC Self-injection through Private Providers in Zambia


This report presents the results of an initiative to provide the Zambian MOH with operational recommendations for family planning policy and program planning. The primary objectives of the activity were to: 1) understand experiences with the new client-centered DMPA-SC self-injection training model, including clients’ willingness to pay for the product; and 2) identify health system relationships, barriers, and solutions for national scale-up in Zambia.

The team found that DMPA-SC’s unique self-injection feature requires a more client-centered service delivery approach, tailored to the specific needs and preferences of women who seek services from private health providers. This report will help inform country and global learning, in particular the private sector, as countries introduce this new contraceptive method, also known as Sayana Press, and look for ways to engage the private health sector.
