Pfizer collaboration to provide access to contraceptives in poorer nations

9th May 2017

Pfizer has expanded a collaborative project to help provide greater access to contraceptives in some of the world's poorest countries.

The company has announced a multi-year extension of its work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation to further broaden access to Pfizer's all-in-one injectable contraceptive Sayana Press.

It will now be available to qualified purchasers at a guaranteed price of $0.85 (66p) per dose, a reduction from the previous price of $1. Based on a prefilled single-use system, it eliminates the need to prepare a needle and syringe, allowing it to be administered outside clinical settings.

John Young, president of Pfizer Essential Health, said: "Our hope is that more women in the developing world will now have access to Sayana Press as an option to meet their specific family planning needs."

This collaboration launched in 2014, with 6.4 million units of Sayana Press shipped to 20 developing countries by the end of 2016. The product is expected to have reached more than 1.5 million women – up from 350,000 women at the end of 2014.
