2017 Update: CIFF’s strategic plan from 2017 to 2021 commits us to working with others to shape an AIDS-free generation where every adolescent can realise their sexual and reproductive rights with access to the information and services they need. Since January 2017 we have more than doubled our funding for sexual and reproductive health with new investments totalling $72 million. Our work is focused on putting adolescents at the centre of the design of SRH programmes; increasing choice with different types of contraception that respond to teenagers’ preferences, especially user-controlled choices; digital innovations to better connect young people with more accountable services; and amplifying youth voices within debates on the issues that affect them most.

Looking to the future, CIFF investments will be more targeted, bolstering what works best, reducing unit costs and tackling taboos head on. Specifically: (1) We will build a community of practice on human-centred design to inject urgency into changing the way adolescent SRH programmes and sex education is delivered; (2) We will strengthen country leadership and capacity to deliver on their commitments to adolescents, through country-driven technical assistance and results-based financing, within our broader investments; (3) We will be an exemplar for integration, maximising ways to layer user-controlled contraception, HIV prevention and safe abortion or post-abortion care; (4) We will continue to invest in measurement, capturing age and sex-disaggregated data across our SRH programmes; (5) Above all, we will be a better ally to young people, maximising youth leadership, youth-led accountability and participation in decision-making processes including within our own organisation.

2012: The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) enthusiastically supports the goals set by the London Summit on Family Planning as integral to the broader program of support to the UN Secretary General’s Every Women Every Child initiative. In conjunction with the global family planning initiative, CIFF will pursue landscaping and develop an action plan in the area of reproductive health with the intention of contributing strategically, tangibly, and at scale to further the aims of Family Planning 2020. The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation provides both funding and human resources to ensure greater accessibility of long-acting and reversible methods of contraception and will continue its work to enable women and governments to acquire these products at affordable prices.

Pfizer - Financial

DateMay 11, 2017

May 11, 2017 Update: Pfizer Inc. and a consortium of donors—including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Children’s
Investment Fund Foundation, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and UNFPA—are launching a public-private collaboration to broaden access to Sayana Press, Pfizer’s innovative injectable contraceptive.

Sayana Press is a three-month contraceptive in the all-in-one, single-use Uniject™ injection system developed by PATH and manufactured by Becton, Dickinson & Company. Sayana Press contains a reformulation of depo medroxyprogesterone acetate that allows it to be administered subcutaneously (subQ). The product’s design means that community health workers, pharmacists, and even women themselves can be trained to administer it (where approved by national health authorities). Sayana Press is
available to qualified purchasers at a guaranteed price of US $0.85 per dose, a reduction from the previous price of US $1.00 per dose.

Sayana Press is currently being introduced, scaled-up, or piloted in more than 15 FP2020 countries, with Pfizer continuing to support additional country registrations. The donor consortium is supporting the collaboration with over US $270 million in investments between now and 2022

Sept. 16, 2015--Pfizer commits to selling Sayana® Press for US$1/dose to qualified purchasers for two years. Sayana® Press combines Depo-Provera with Uniject™, a completely self-contained one-dose injection system that eliminates the need for health workers to store medicines and syringes or measure out doses. The price agreement allows Sayana® Press to be offered to women in FP2020 countries at reduced or zero cost. Financial support is provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), while in-country distribution is made possible by PATH, DFID, UNFPA, and USAID. 

Pfizer is responsible for quality manufacturing of Sayana® Press, as well as obtaining registrations in key markets. Sayana® Press has been registered or has registration pending in over 10 of the 69 priority family planning markets. In addition, stakeholders have sought waivers to make Sayana® Press available in markets where there is no registration.

The consortium of public and private sector donors and aid organizations supporting this collaboration will assist with procurement and support country introductions and the delivery of Sayana® Press to health facilities. At the country level, the organizations will also work with local governments to help ensure injectable contraceptive methods are included in reproductive health plans and budgets, coordinate health worker trainings, and raise awareness about the availability of Sayana® Press.
