More than 300,000 doses of Sayana Press administered through 2015 in four countries
Over 90,000 new contraceptive users reached
As access to Sayana Press expands globally, PATH has continued to monitor Sayana Press consumption in four pilot introduction countries: Burkina Faso, Niger, Senegal, and Uganda.
PATH will continue to collect monitoring data from the pilot introductions through June 2016, approximately two years after the pilots launched. In the meantime, PATH and country partners are working to transition data collection on Sayana Press consumption to national health information management systems.
Highlights of monitoring data from July 2014 through December 2015 include:
- 311,392 doses of Sayana Press were administered in Burkina Faso, Niger, Senegal, and Uganda.
- PATH estimates that Sayana Press was administered to more than 90,000 women using modern family planning for the first time.
- Niger and Uganda administered the highest proportions of Sayana Press to new users of modern contraception. These countries make Sayana Press available only at the community level/most peripheral level of the health system.
- Niger and Uganda administered the highest proportions of Sayana Press to women younger than 25 years—almost half of the total number of doses administered in each country.
*The small sample in Senegal is due to the sentinel site system established to gather data for certain indicators.
