Observational study of the acceptability of Sayana® Press among intramuscular DMPA users in Uganda and Senegal

This study measured acceptability of DMPA-SC (Sayana® Press) among intramuscular DMPA (DMPA-IM) users. Current DMPA-IM users in Senegal and Uganda accepted DMPA-SC, and most preferred DMPA-SC over DMPA-IM. DMPA-SC can be safely introduced into family planning programs and administered by trained community health workers, with expectation of client uptake.

Journal Article Observational study of the acceptability of Sayana® Press among intramuscular DMPA users in Uganda and Senegal

Provider acceptability of Sayana® Press: results from community health workers and clinic-based providers in Uganda and Senegal.

Sayana® Press (SP), a subcutaneous formulation of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) in Uniject™, has potential to be a valuable innovation in family planning (FP) because it may overcome logistic and safety challenges in delivering intramuscular DMPA (DMPA IM). However, SP’s acceptability is unknown. We measured acceptability of SP among clinic-based providers (Senegal only) and community health workers. This open-label observational study was conducted in clinics in three districts in Senegal and community-based services in two districts in Uganda. Providers administered SP to clients seeking reinjection of DMPA IM. We conducted in-depth interviews with 86 providers (52 in Senegal, 34 in Uganda) to assess their experiences providing SP to clients.
