Injectable Contraceptive Launched in Burkina Faso to Expand Choice and Address Unmet Need
Date:7/10/2014

Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

Women in the West African nation, Burkina Faso, today have access to an additional family planning option. Sayana® Press has the potential to increase access to contraception at all levels of the health system and in communities by combining a lower-dose formulation of a widely used contraceptive—Pfizer’s Depo-Provera® (depot medroxyprogesterone acetate)—with the BD Uniject™ injection system.

Burkina Faso is the first of four African countries expected to begin introducing Sayana® Press in 2014, followed shortly by Niger. Senegal and Uganda also plan to introduce the contraceptive at the community level in select areas later this year.

“Family planning is vital if girls and women are to have voice, choice, and control in their lives,” said UK International Development Minister Lynne Featherstone. “Sayana® Press will help expand the contraceptive options available in developing countries, giving more girls and women the chance to make their own decisions about whether and when to have children.”

The introductions are being led by each country’s ministry of health and supported by a consortium of public and private partners that includes the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Pfizer, PATH, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

“Strong public-private partnerships are playing a critical role in expanding contraceptive access and options for women around the world,” said Chris Elias, President of Global Development at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “This innovative initiative brings us one step closer to ensuring that family planning is available to women when and where they want it.”

The launches follow the regulatory approval of Sayana® Press in each of the four introduction countries. In
