SAYANA PRESS CHALLENGE; UGANDA
PROVEN INTERVENTION TO BE DISTRIBUTED
Sayana Press injectable contraceptive.
Learn more about the Sayana® Press Challenge and why training health providers to administer Sayana® Press can be particularly valuable for women who prefer injectable contraceptives but don’t have regular access.
DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
Bronze Health Care Initiative will scale up last mile distribution of Sayana press in rural
Uganda giving women more power to choose when to have and not have children.
The Bronze Health Care Initiative team will import their own stock of Sayana Press into Uganda through a partnership with Pfizer Inc. Once purchased, the stock of Sayana press will be verified at the customs by Uganda revenue authority, then taken to the main store where it is counted, recorded in stock cards and stored. Then it will be distributed to various district stores managed by community based distribution facilitators (CBDFs) who are employees of Bronze. These CBDF's are area managers who will oversee a network of pharmacy store owners (also known as Community Based Distributors or CBDs) in their region. It will be the CBDF's job to coordinate the distribution of Sayana Press from the main Bronze office to each CBD or partner pharmacy across four regions of Uganda. It will also be the responsibility of the CBDF to conduct trainings on Sayana Press for each CBD and community health worker who will make the injectable contraceptive available in last mile communities.
