    Effect of self-administration versus provider-administered injection of subcutaneous depot medroxyprogesterone acetate on continuation rates in Malawi: A randomised controlled trial
    The authors found that women who self-administered subcutaneous depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA-SC) led to a more than 50 percent increase in pregnancy protection through 12 months compared with provider-administered injection. The findings demonstrate that self-injection can address the stubborn problem of early contraceptive discontinuation and that community health workers can safely train women to self-inject. Malawi plans to introduce DMPA-SC self-injection based on these positive findings.

    Findings from this systematic literature review indicate that current evidence on strategies to improve adherence to antiretroviral therapy among adolescents is both sparse and lacking in quality. Further, no intervention strategies targeting adults stood out strongly as warranting adaptation and testing for adolescents. Task shifting and community-based adherence support were the most promising strategies that could be adapted to target adolescents.
