Merck - Financial

Merck, known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, commits to extending access pricing for IMPLANON® and IMPLANON NXT®—its single-rod, long-acting, reversible contraceptive implants—in FP2020 focus countries for an additional five years through 2023.

This builds on Merck’s original announcement in May 2013 to reduce the cost of its implants by approximately 50 percent for six years, through 2018. 

Since May 2013, the number of IMPLANON® and IMPLANON NXT® implants provided in targeted countries has doubled, bringing greater choice to millions of women in some of the world’s poorest regions.

Jhpiego - Financial

DateSeptember 28, 2014

July 11, 2017 - Update: At the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning, Jhpiego committed US $200,000 to support family planning innovations in Burkina Faso. That investment has resulted in more than $7 million to expand method choice, and specifically, increasing access to quality postpartum family planning (PPFP). What began as a pilot to introduce services in 5 public facilities was expanded to 25—with plans to scale up to remaining regions. With additional funding from UNFPA and an anonymous donor, the program developed the capacity of local partners to accelerate PPFP adoption, thereby aiding the Government of Burkina Faso’s progress toward their FP2020 goal. Today, women in Burkina Faso are better able to plan their families.  

Over the next three years, Jhpiego will provide US $500,000 to implement and advocate for programs and policies that increase access to family planning for adolescents and first-time parents, expand uptake of PPFP, and prepare frontline health workers to deliver quality family planning services. In Uganda and Ghana, we will introduce interventions to empower first-time parents to ensure healthy timing and spacing of future births and provide lifesaving information on breastfeeding and newborn care. Furthermore, Jhpiego commits to supporting West African governments in achieving their FP2020 commitments.

JHPIEGO commits to providing new, incremental funds in the amount of US $200,000 to support innovations in the provision of implant/injectable services at the community-level, using front-line health workers.
