The momentum around self-care is building through an array of self-care practices, policies, and interventions worldwide. This report aims to take stock of the SRH self-care field and document its progress. It is intended to provide a resource for global and national advocacy, to inform implementation of self-care guidelines, and to link the reader to evidence and learning exchanges. It includes case examples describing the process of introducing and scaling up DMPA-SC self-injection in Malawi and Nigeria.

It was developed through a consensus-driven process led by the Self-Care Trailblazer Group’s evaluation learning working group, engaging global experts, including academics, implementers, donors, and intergovernmental organizations.
