With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide.

The Subcutaneous DMPA Access Collaborative is a project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and led by PATH in collaboration with John Snow, Incorporated (JSI).

Subcutaneous DMPA is an innovative subcutaneous contraceptive that is progressively being introduced in many countries. The Access Collaborative project facilitates global coordination of supply planning and introduction and scale up efforts in priority countries.

The project helps plan, coordinate, and monitor the introduction and scale-up efforts in seven priority geographies and shares lessons learned, best practices, and other relevant information regionally and globally through technical assistance and a Learning and Action Network.
