INVESTING IN INNOVATION:
For millions of women in the world’s poorest countries, injectable contraceptives are the method of choice for family planning. Pfizer’s popular Depo-Provera® is safe, effective, and convenient: a single shot lasts for three months. It is also discreet. With no pills to take and no supplies to store, a woman can exercise her right to contraception in privacy, without having to ask her husband’s permission or cope with opposition from in-laws.
Now a new design is making Depo-Provera® even better. Sayana® Press combines Depo-Provera® with Uniject™, a special one-use syringe that was originally developed for vaccines.
