Sayana Press in the Sahel – factsheet

Self-managed health   |   20 May 2017 



DMPA-SC (Sayana® Press) is a sub-cutaneous injection that is non-invasive, discrete and easy to use.

It has the potential to attract adolescents and young women who may have never used modern contraception before, and can increase women’s choice and autonomy, particularly if it is administered through self-injection.

Marie Stopes International has been offering DMPA-SC in our service delivery channels in Burkina FasoNiger and Senegal since May 2016. This factsheet details some of our results to date.
