The purpose of this template is to provide users with an evidence-based, adaptable framework for planning a large-scale DMPA-SC self-injection program in any country. It builds on, and acts as an addendum to, the broader National plan for the introduction and scale-up of subcutaneous DMPA (DMPA-SC) template, providing more specificity for self-injection program planning. This template includes links to many resources, such as summaries of scientific evidence, a detailed Program Design Guide, advocacy materials, and training resources. For more information or assistance when developing a country plan for DMPA-SC introduction and scale-up, visit the Access Collaborative technical assistance page or contact FPoptions@path.org.
