Looking back, thinking forward, and scaling up: Insights from the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative

The DMPA-SC Access Collaborative hosted this April 21, 2021 webinar highlighting lessons learned to date through four years of data-driven technical assistance and coordination to ensure that women have increased access to self-injection as a contraceptive option, delivered through informed choice programming. The discussion focused on key topics for the introduction and scale-up of self-injection—and self-care interventions more broadly—at the country level including:

  • Policy and advocacy for new product introduction.
  • How to coordinate scale-up of a new product.
  • Using data to inform program introduction and scale-up.
  • Effective innovations and adaptations in provider training.

This discussion was moderated by Monica Mutesa, Zambia Country Coordinator, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH. Speakers included:

  • Caitlin Corneliess, Project Director, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH
  • Adewole Adefalu, Nigeria Country Coordinator, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, JSI
  • Allen Namagembe, Uganda Deputy Director, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, PATH
  • Avotiana Rakotomanga, Madagascar Country Coordinator, DMPA-SC Access Collaborative, JSI

Track20 works directly with governments in participating FP2020 countries to collect, analyze and use data to monitor progress annually in family planning and to actively use data to improve family planning strategies and plans. Track20 activities and efforts are focused on countries that chose to make a commitment to the FP2020 global initiative, referred to as Track20 Focus Countries. The remaining FP2020 countries, referred to as Additional Track20 Countries, will also receive some technical support.

DMPA-SC digital training resources for health workers and clients

By leveraging digital training tools, family planning programs can integrate new approaches that help reduce the costs, time, and inconvenience associated with traditional classroom training. The Access Collaborative has developed digital training resources for health workers and clients learning to administer DMPA-SC.

A 10-lesson DMPA-SC eLearning course for health workers is available for free in English and French and can be taken on computer or mobile device with internet access. Content includes an emphasis on informed choice counseling, new lessons on calculating the injection date and conducting follow-up visits, and updated information on training clients to self-inject.

In addition to the eLearning course, PATH and JSI have developed short 5- to 7-minute DMPA-SC training videos for both self-injection clients and health workers. Available in English and French, the videos can be translated or adapted to fit in program contexts.

If you are interested in introducing DMPA-SC digital training approaches in your program, please contact the Access Collaborative at FPoptions@path.org.
