How Family Planning Programs Can Meet Rising Demand for Injectable Contraceptives

This brief states:

  • As demand for injectable contraceptives continues to rise rapidly, programs are challenged to expand access and improve the quality of care.
  • To expand access, programs need to keep injectables in stock, train more providers, and find ways to offer injectables in rural and isolated areas.
  • Good-quality services ensure that providers counsel clients well, give injections safely, and properly dispose to used needles and syringes.
