Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure the acceptability of Depo-subQ in Uniject among DMPA IM family planning clients; [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    percent of participants who declare they would select Depo-subQ in Uniject for their next injection if this drug product was available at three months with a 95% confidence interval per country

  • 2) Measure the acceptability of Depo-subQ in Uniject among family planning providers (both clinic-based and CHWs); [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    key themes will be identified from interview transcripts to summarize family planning providers' (clinic-based and CHWs) acceptability of Depo-subQ in Uniject and preference for administering Depo-subQ in Uniject relative to the typical DMPA intramuscular injection by county

  • Assess family planning providers' (clinic-based and CHWs) training materials. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    descriptive analyses (e.g., frequencies and means) of responses for quantitative questions and summaries providers' qualitative responses to open-ended questions from the post-training evaluation for each country


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1) To qualitatively compare acceptability of Depo-subQ in Uniject among the two types of family planning providers—clinic-based and CHWs (Senegal only) [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    frequencies and summary statistics of acceptability data among family planning clients by asking participants to compare their experiences receiving Depo-subQ in Uniject to their experiences receiving the typical DMPA intramuscular injection by country

  • 2) To assess the safety of participants who receive Depo-subQ in Uniject during the study [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    frequencies of reported adverse events by country

Detailed Description:

This is an observational study to assess the experience of current depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) intramuscular (IM) clients and providers when they try Depo-subQ in Uniject and offer recommendations for the introduction of this method.

A total of 560 participants will be enrolled in the study in the following groups:

360 participants (120 in Uganda and 240 in Senegal) who are current DMPA IM clients who seek re-injection of DMPA from either community health workers (CHWs) or clinic-based providers; and are 18-40 years of age; received their most recent DMPA injection no more than 13 weeks prior to enrollment in the study [16].

Up to 100 participants (50 in Uganda and 50 in Senegal) current DMPA IM clients who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria but do not want to receive the injection with Depo-subQ in Uniject and are willing to complete a short questionnaire

80 CHWs (40 in Uganda and 40 in Senegal) and 20 clinic-based providers (from Senegal only) who are trained to give Depo-subQ in Uniject as part of this study

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 40 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
