Journey to DMPA-SC in the Sahel
This study took place between August and October 2017 within 5 study sites in Niger, Senegal, and Burkina Faso.
The study was focused on an ongoing project introducing Sayana Press, an injectable contraceptive, in the Sahel. The study aimed to identify the views and perceptions of clients and providers on the introduction of self-injection. This was a qualitative study and was focused on clients aged 15 to 49. The study consisted of 90 interviews with contraceptive users, 51 with non-contraceptive users, 18 focus groups with family influencers, and 49 interviews with health providers.
The study identified that while most clients and providers were generally positive about the method, in particular not having to return to the provider every 3 months, there were still concerns about the safety of the method and the ability of clients to self-inject.
