These include:

  • Assessing demand for injectables and feasibility of introducing injectables in a particular country;
  • Expanding access to injectables using a variety of service delivery models;
  • Removing barriers to use of injectables.

These experiences will inform health policy makers, program managers, and service providers of the strategies, challenges, and lessons learned from initiatives that address the use of injectables within family planning programs.

Many reports are available that discuss the implementation of community-based distribution of injectables, as this approach has been found to be a safe and effective means for increasing accessibility of injectables and decreasing unmet need for family planning.
