Increasing Access to Next Generation Injectables Meeting

January 30 - February 2, 2017
Dakar, Senegal

The Increasing Access to Next Generation Injectables Meeting was a working meeting aimed to increase voluntary and quality access to DMPA-SC within a wide range of contraceptive methods and inform related policy decisions with existing evidence and experience. The meeting agenda (forthcoming) had three key objectives:

  1. Increased knowledge among implementers/researchers, donors, and advocates regarding the experiences of early adopter countries and potential for introducing and providing DMPA-SC in more settings. These include private and public sector services, social marketing, community-based distribution programs, pharmacy/drug shop provision and, as appropriate, home/self-injection of DMPA-SC.
  2. Prioritization of opportunities for advocacy that can accelerate introduction of and increased access to DMPA-SC and support advocacy related to accelerating contraceptive method mix.
  3. Identification of next steps to advance policy challenges related to the introduction of and increased access to DMPA-SC and a wide range of contraceptive methods.

Follow-up activities from the meeting will be taken on through the Opportunity Fund -- a small grants program managed by PAI with funding from AFP that helps advocates seize opportunities to accelerate Family Planning 2020’s success at district, state, national, and regional levels.
