Price of ‘exciting’ self-injectable contraceptive cut
Thursday, May 11, 2017
The price of an innovative device which allows women to give themselves a contraceptive jab has been cut.
Sayana Press has mostly been used by women in developing countries, as part of a global push to expand access to modern contraception.
Working in collaboration with donor organisations has enabled the drug company Pfizer to drop the price from $1 a unit to $0.85 per dose.
The move comes ahead of a big summit on family planning in London this summer.
