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

itial introduction of Sayana® Press in Burkina Faso brings injectable contraceptives to the most peripheral level of the health system and integrates them for the first time into regular community health outreach.

Burkina Faso’s introduction activities are being implemented by the country’s Ministry of Health and key partner organizations, including UNFPA, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Marie Stopes International (MSI), and the Association Burkinabé pour le Bien-Etre Familial (ABBEF), with technical support from PATH.

The global initiative to support Sayana Press introduction was launched at the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning as part of a larger effort to ensure that voluntary family planning information, contraceptives, and services reach 120 million more women and girls in the world’s poorest countries by 2020.

Pfizer’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall remarked, “At Pfizer, we strive to improve the health of people worldwide, and, as part of that, we’re committed to increasing access in developing countries to our portfolio. While the industry can take the lead in developing products suited to the needs of the market, it is largely through innovative private-public partnerships such as this that we can ensure the long-term viability of supply and distrib
